    Executive Summary -- Background on the Problem -- Finding Solutions: Forecasting Summary -- Finding Solutions: Breakout Session Summary -- Summary of Actions to Optimize the Use of Diagnostics.

    On December 4, 2015, CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion’s Office of Antimicrobial Resistance (OAR) and AdvaMedDx hosted an all-day meeting with industry leaders to forecast the future development of diagnostic tests and look for solutions to challenges that come with the development, uptake and implementation of tests that can improve public health and slow the spread of antibiotic resistance (AR). The meeting—A Public Health Perspective on AR Diagnostics—included more than 80 attendees representing more than 28 companies from diagnostic, academic, policy, patient advocacy and microbiology backgrounds.

    Attendees participated in breakout sessions covering opportunities to improve antibiotic use, promote infection control diagnostics in healthcare, improve use of new diagnostics with education and guidance, and collect resistance data in an era of culture-independent diagnostics (CID). Attendee input in the interactive forecasting discussion and breakout sessions has been compiled and synthesized here, resulting in a list of opportunities for industry, government and professional societies to work together and optimize the potential impact of diagnostics to address the problem of antibiotic resistance.
