HI-POCT 2022

The seventh annual IEEE EMB Strategic Conference will focus on point-of-care technologies (HI-POCT) for healthcare, emphasizing funding opportunities and the promise and pitfalls of the journey from idea to the patient. The conference will provide a strategic forum in which clinicians, industry experts, innovation experts, researchers and students will examine how to define unmet clinical needs and successfully travel along the innovation cycle towards commercialization and patient impact. Clinical, technological, regulatory, and marketing aspects of this learnable process will be stressed. Expert panels will discuss learnings in the development, translation and commercialization of technologies related to Covid-19, and challenges in bringing medical care innovation to community health.

The overall goal of the strategic conference is to provide opportunities for stakeholders to explore collaborations and synergies to accelerate HI-POCT technologies for improving global and deep space healthcare at an affordable cost.

Keynote speeches, panel discussions, a demonstration showcase and breakout sessions with leaders and stakeholders will address clinical needs, mastering the process of innovation, funding, and individual networking opportunities. In addition, a limited number of poster presentations will be included in the final program.

Conference themes would include a topical coverage of (but not limited to):

  • Global and Precision Health
  • Telemedicine and Health Informatics
  • Machine and deep learning/Big data
  • Mobile and Wearable diagnostics
  • Personalized Health
  • Miniature and wireless devices
  • Molecular and Microfluidic diagnostics
  • Biosensors/Biomarkers
  • Mental Health Technology
  • Diversity and social determinants of health
  • Regulatory challenges
  • Community medicine technology
  • Translation and Commercialization

Who Should Attend:

All researchers, clinicians and students engaged in scientific and clinical research related to development and commercialization of healthcare applications are invited to attend. All stakeholders in healthcare innovations, delivery, maintenance, services and management are specifically encouraged to participate in the conference. Industries and businesses dealing with healthcare products, devices, pharma and payers, along with life-sciences-related sponsoring agencies and foundations are welcome to participate in the collaborative synergy addressing the future of healthcare innovations and point-of-care technologies in medicine.
