Very Brief Blog; AMP Holds Molecular Pathology Economics Summit, Washington, 9/20/2019

The Association for Molecular Pathology is holding a Molecular Pathology Economics Summit in Washington, DC.   It will be on Friday, September 20, 2019.

The AMP website for the conference is here.

I've clipped partial information on the conference as text below.  At bottom of this blog, I mention a few other coming precision medicine events.

AMP September 20:
Molecular diagnostics is a rapidly evolving field with frequently changing standards for care that challenge the current paradigm for coding, coverage and payment. The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) is bringing together stakeholders across the healthcare spectrum in a one day summit with the goal to establish shared opportunities to improve the molecular diagnostics economic landscape.  
Attendees will participate in guided discussions to identify barriers to appropriate reimbursement for molecular pathology procedures and then explore and have the opportunity to propose solutions to critical challenges that are limiting full realization of the possibilities offered by precision medicine. The Summit will connect experts across multiple industries and professional arenas harnessing the collective effort to advance the national dialogue towards improving patient access to appropriate molecular diagnostic care. 
AMP’s Molecular Pathology Economics Summit will be a highly interactive one-day gathering focused on:
  • Identifying barriers to appropriate reimbursement for molecular pathology procedures;
  • Identifying the impact of these barriers on various stakeholders and patient access to care; and
  • Identifying potential solutions and/or novel approaches to overcoming barriers, with a goal of identifying shared policy agendas for the participating stakeholders in oncology, infectious diseases, and inherited conditions
Date: September 20, 2019
Time: 8:00am - 3:30 pm Eastern
Location: Conrad Washington DC, 950 New York Ave. NW, Washington DC, District of Columbia, 20001
