Voyage Into Point-Of-Care Testing Gets Deeper

Diagnostic testing is increasingly moving from centralized laboratories into pharmacies, physicians' offices, hospitals and directly to consumers as part of the transition to value-based care with its focus on providing quality care at a lower cost. Point-of-care testing (POCT) – and what it means for the future of health-care delivery, health-care providers and creators of innovative technologies joining forces to satisfy consumers' growing appetite for convenient and rapid testing – took centerstage at the recent AACC Annual Meeting in San Diego. This feature takes a closer look at the increasing migration of POCT into the retail arena, specifically pharmacies, to support primary-care providers, along with its challenges. It also highlights emerging trends and technologies, including presentations of the "Star Trek-like" innovations from the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize competition winners that are bound to disrupt the landscape of direct-to-consumer testing. We also provide expert opinions of the pros and cons of bringing POC services closer to consumers.

Relentless Rise Of Transcatheter Tech: Heart Valve Repair Turns Back On Open Surgery

The global market for products treating heart valve disease is expected to exceed $8bn by 2021, driven largely by the rising number of elderly patients with cardiovascular disease, obesity and growing prevalence of diabetes. This, in turn, is fueling significant innovation in minimally invasive techniques, particularly in the leading area of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), but also in transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVrep) systems, both of which offer patients quicker recovery times, less discomfort and greater safety compared to traditional surgical heart valve repair and replacement. This feature looks more closely at the competitive landscape and dynamics of these two fast-growing market segments, as well as gives insight into what the users – the physicians – think of these technologies.
