The sponsor of the event is Accumetrics, maker of the VerifyNow System, which offers physician’s high level clinical data regarding their patient’s anti-platelet medications within minutes with an in-office test. The VerifyNow System assesses response to life-saving anti-platelet therapies, such as aspirin, Plavix, Effient and GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors. Patients respond to anti-platelet medications differently and these tests help physicians ensure their patients are receiving the optimal treatment.
