Improving healthcare through diagnostics: the future of IVDs

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Clinicians, hospitals, patients and governments are all striving for improved healthcare. In the US, this has recently taken the form of an ongoing debate about health reform. In addition to expanding access to healthcare services and improving the quality of care, the reform effort aims to slow the growth of healthcare expenditure by "bending the cost curve". Recent estimates suggest that medical errors cost the US approximately $37.6bn each year, approximately $17bn-worth of which are preventable. These errors lead to roughly 70,000-100,000 deaths in US hospitals per year.
