CIMIT Forum 3/30 on how new diagnostics / medical devices are evaluated

On March 30th the CIMIT Forum is holding an interesting session on “Healthcare Technology: Comparative and Cost Effectiveness.”

When: Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 4:00 to 6:00PM

Where: Brigham and Women’s Hospital Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center Breakout Room (Rm 1010 – 1st Floor) 70 Francis Street, Boston, MA, USA

Two of the presentations look potentially interesting for those developing microfluidics/bioMEMS devices for diagnostic or therapeutic use:

How DO We Evaluate and Implement a New Lab Test?

NEIL LINDEMAN, BA, MD Assistant Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School and Associate Pathologist for Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics, Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Evaluating Medical Devices

JAY SCHNITZER, MD, PHD Associate Chief Medical Officer and Vice President, Boston Scientific

In addition, Christopher Thompson and Fred Schoen of Brigham and Women’s/ Harvard Medical School will be speaking about assessment of technologies for surgery.

Remember, if you’re not in the Boston area or can’t make the talk, the CIMIT forum also posts videos of pasts events in their forum archive.
