It is a great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the First IEEE-EMBS Special Topic Conference on Point-Of-Care (POCT) Healthcare Technologies that will focus on innovation, research, technology development and best practices in deployment of health monitoring technologies in developing and developed economies for better global healthcare. The conference will feature research presentations and technology panel discussions and forums on recent technological advances and global issues on implementation of POC technologies. Though the challenges of providing high-quality healthcare in developing countries are different than those in developed countries, there is a common goal to provide access to health monitoring and assessment technologies to people with limited or no healthcare facilities. While the developed countries may find POC technologies as effective means for reducing healthcare costs and improving efficiency, POC technologies are critical in responding to essential healthcare needs in countries with large populations or rural areas. The developing countries in the eastern part of the globe accounting for more than 2/3rd of the population of the world face the basic challenge of providing minimal healthcare to all people living in adverse geographical or economic constraints, and also monitoring critical diseases and infections such as HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, etc. The challenge becomes even more critical in the situation of potential outbreak of an epidemic. The proposed conference will provide an international forum to explore POCT health monitoring technologies that could play significantly important role mode in “well-being” of a healthy society with increasing proportion of elderly people.
