The Bottom Line: Strategies for Labs to Offer Cost-Effective Genetic Testing at Scale

Abstract

With increased reimbursement, many labs are considering launching genetic tests as an economic alternative to send-outs. One of the biggest economic drivers of test cost is the time and expense of manual interpretation of variants. We’ll examine where efficiencies can be gained in the interpretation process and how they not only preserve, but enhance the quality of testing.
