Monday, July 28, 2014 | 4 - 6:30 PM

The Big Question Is How Can Today's Laboratorian Manage And Capitalize On Big Data?
While it is interesting to talk about the social and technological implications of Big Data, it’s time to stop beating around the bush and actually utilize the technologies to drive quality medical decisions to improve healthcare outcomes. But, before these benefits are realized, new innovative tools and technologies need to make their way into mainstream laboratory practice.

The 2014 DxMA @ AACC Seminar will consist of a panel drawn from the healthcare professionals and diagnostic industry leaders who have a vision for how this innovation evolution might look and insight into what laboratorians may expect. Since the laboratory produces an overwhelming amount of data that challenges today's legacy architecture, the future which will include extensive data arrays drawn from next generation sequencing and companion diagnostics call for contemporary tools and systems to deliver the promise of tomorrow's world.

Panelists to Include: 

Sean Scott, VP and GM, Clinical Genomics, Qiagen

Curt Johnson, COO, Orchard Software

Simon Chin, President, CEO and Founder, Iris Biotechnologies Inc.

Robert McGonnagle, Publisher, CAP Today, Moderator
