AdvaMedDx ACLA West Coast Summit

November 10, 2016
San Diego, CA

The nation’s leading diagnostic industry associations – the American Clinical Laboratory Association (ACLA) and AdvaMedDx – have teamed up to sponsor a first-of-its-kind diagnostic summit this fall in San Diego. This one-day summit will feature leaders from both the clinical laboratory and diagnostic manufacturer sectors, from government and commercial payers, from the investor community, from Congress and others.

The summit will provide the latest perspectives of the diagnostic industry’s leaders on key issues such as:

  • The state of the laboratory and diagnostic sector
  • The implementation of PAMA and what it means for laboratories and manufacturers
  • The latest on FDA oversight of Laboratory Developed Tests
  • The value of diagnostics from the commercial payer perspective
  • The impact of the 2016 Presidential and Congressional election on health care issues

The registration will be limited to 120, on a first come first serve basis, and allow attendees to participate in the dialogue with these industry and government leaders. We urge you to register as soon as possible as we expect the summit to sell out quickly.
