"Our smartphones will not only be merely communication devices but also become personal healthcare assistants capable of receiving body fluid samples for analysis and transmittal of results," said G. Steven Burrill, CEO, Burrill & Company. "Wherever you are in the world you will be able to contact physicians who themselves will be able to practice medicine anywhere, at anytime with instant access to the information and systems they need - right at their fingertips. Our meeting will provide an important forum for discussions on the ramifications that these developments will bring with them, particularly on the policy side of the equation since the technology will require the system to reimburse value rather than volume."
