Build or Buy: Optimizing Informatics for Genetic Testing
Expanding lab capabilities to ensure flexibility and scalability
To meet the increasing demand for personalized, patient-centric care, many healthcare facilities are choosing to bring genetic testing into their labs. As this trend continues, organizations that continue to send out while others build their capabilities risk losing patients.
Whether starting or scaling genetics testing-in house, facilities looking to expand their capabilities will need to decide whether to build or buy an informatics solution to support their growth. While many labs start small, gradually adding manual processes and spreadsheets, the volume of data and complicated procedures involved in a molecular lab can quickly become overwhelming and stall any future initiatives.
Sunquest’s new white paper Build or Buy: Optimizing Informatics for Genetic Testing looks at the essential questions labs need to ask as they prepare to enhance their testing capacity:
