Trends in Genomic Research That Could Impact Clinical Laboratories and Anatomic Pathology Groups Very Soon
Genomics is quickly becoming the foundational disruptor technology on which many new and powerful clinical laboratory tests and procedures will be based
Genomics testing has become accessible, affordable, and in some instances, life-saving. Clinical laboratories and pathology groups are handling more genomic data each year, and the trend does not appear to be slowing down. Here are current trends in genomic research that soon could be bringing new capabilities to medical laboratories nationwide.
Improved Data Sharing
Sometimes genetic tests don’t translate into better outcomes for patients because medical labs are limited in how they can share genomic data. Thus, experts from various disciplines are seeking ways to integrate genomic data sharing into the hospital and laboratory clinical workflow in a form that’s easily accessible to doctors. (more…)
