Sunquest Information Systems: Molecular Diagnostics for Healthcare Facilities: How to Start and Scale an Efficient Testing Program

Every healthcare organization is faced with the requirement to control costs while demonstrating better quality outcomes for patients. Genetic testing presents new opportunities to meet this need, by accelerating the diagnostic process and pinpointing effective treatments or potential adverse reactions. For example, a recent study of patients being treated for cancer showed that patients in the precision medicine group nearly doubled their span of progression-free survival, with a slight reduction in costper-week for their treatment.
