Better Care Through Better Reporting
In addition to identifying variants, laboratories offering genetic sequencing-based tests must write reports that explain the clinical significance of the often unique set of variants found in a patient. The quality of those reports is critical to the effective integration of genetic information into clinical practice.
As the amount of genetic information assayed in each test continues to grow, it becomes more difficult for laboratories to track knowledge associated with identified variants. It also becomes increasingly challenging for geneticists to assemble this knowledge into reports that are not only accurate but also concise, patient specific, and highly informative. The need to constantly increase the throughput of reporting often works against these goals.
GeneInsight Lab® combines an extensive knowledgebase structure with a report generation engine. The system uses templating functionality to support efficient report drafting, including complex cases with multiple novel variants or sets of variants.
Today, the interpretive process doesn’t end once a report is sent - information about variants continues to emerge and evolve over time. GeneInsight provides laboratories with a cost-effective and scalable solution to keep clinicians updated as variant-level information evolves.
- Stores and manages genetic variant information & case histories
- Assists in the efficient generation of clinical reports through a template driven drafting tool
- Updates and informs Geneinsight Clinic users (clinicians) as variant-level knowledge is updated at the laboratory level
- Facilitates import of transcript and genomic reference sequences, allowing for a rich association between this information, test content, and variant nomenclature
This powerful combination of genetic knowledge management and highly flexible report-generation streamlines both reporting and patient-specific knowledge distribution. The GeneInsight Lab application enhances communication among laboratory staff while driving efficiency, consistency, and standardization of the laboratory reporting process.
