March 2022 – The Data Driven Point of View Newsletter. False Positive Results are COMMON at Many Genetic Labs.

Mar 2, 2022 | News

Correct DNA sequencing followed by inaccurate genetic variant classification within a laboratory does affect patient care!  False positive results are commonplace at many genetic testing labs.  How can you find out which labs are more accurate than others to ensure that your patients or members are getting the right care?
Problem:  An unacceptably HIGH frequency of false positive genetic variant classifications within numerous clinical labs has been studied for YEARS.  Peer reviewed publications* group results from multiple labs, thus shielding the worse offending labs from scrutiny.  Which genetic labs are more accurate?
Solution:  Ensure your members are receiving the right answers from their genetic testing!  Center for Genomic Interpretation (CGI) can assist by stringently evaluating tests for the potential false positive and false negative results!  Let us analyze this quickly and inexpensively today!
Please take the time to read through the attached Data Driven Point of View newsletter, which will provide your organization a solution to this issue.  CGI can assist with creating transparency with ¨preferred¨ labs for multiple precision therapeutic areas, all of which are a large cost for potentially false positive, false negative or misleading results.  Please contact us today to set up a time to learn more and start the analysis of your ¨preferred¨ genetic testing labs.

For payers, ELEVATEGENETICS metrics offer unique evaluations when selecting and contracting with laboratories.  For laboratories, these programs offer a unique third-party review focusing on key aspects of the genetic/genomic testing process which can dramatically improve the accuracy of test findings.  For providers and consumers, CGI offers a number of resources to better understand the complex landscape of precision medicine. # # #   The Center for Genomic Interpretationwww.genomicinterpretation.org The Center for Genomic Interpretation (CGI) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to save and improve lives through encouraging careful stewardship of clinical genetics, genomics and precision medicine. Too frequently the precision medicine goals of patients and their providers are unknowingly thwarted by inaccurate or ineffective genetic or genomic testing. We facilitate the realization of value from among the confusing scramble of the new precision medicine era. The CGI team consists of clinical genetics and genomics scientific leaders, healthcare policy veterans, experienced business professionals, and others dedicated to helping stakeholders achieve the vision and promise of precision medicine.  CGI offers a range of programs and services targeted to all stakeholders including patients, providers, payers, pharmaceutical developers, policy makers and laboratories.
