McDermott+Consulting’s inaugural +Dx Diagnostics Forum will explore the unprecedented changes the diagnostics industry is facing as new federal payment schemes and enhanced regulatory oversight create both challenges and opportunities for laboratory diagnostics.

+Dx will explore these changes and provide diagnostics stakeholders with perspective to succeed in this evolving environment. Our renowned faculty will also look ahead to future legislative and regulatory changes affecting diagnostics, giving attendees strategic insight for 2015 and beyond.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Update on FDA regulation
  • Changes to Medicare, Medicaid and private payor coverage, coding and payment
  • Congress’ 21st Century Cures legislative initiative

Senator Hatch Announcement:

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Chairman of the Finance Committee, will keynote the inaugural +Dx Diagnostics Forum.

Senator Hatch is one of the leading voices for rationalizing government payment for and regulation of diagnostic tests. In 2014, Senator Hatch led efforts to advance legislation reforming Medicare payment for laboratory tests. In 2015, Senator Hatch sits atop committees that will be examining Food & Drug Administration regulation of laboratory tests.

Come hear Senator Hatch discuss the government’s role in advancing diagnostic technology and the steps Congress will take in 2015 that will affect this industry.
