Precision Genetic Test Management
Next-generation solution to manage growth and costs of genetic testing.
Genetic testing is exploding, and management is complex.
There are roughly 175,000 genetic tests available with 10 new tests hitting the market each day. There are only ~500 CPT codes available to identify all of those tests. This results in gaps in provider awareness and expertise; variations in coding, coverage, and reimbursement practices; a lack of rigorous clinical evidence and regulation; and wide variability in the quality and utility of precision tests along with the lack of genetic test specificity.
