Genetic testing to transform care
from ADVANCE for Administrators of the Laboratory
Fifteen years after the human genome was decoded, genetic testing is becoming more widely available and is taking its appropriate place in mainstream medicine. The genetic information that cost Steve Jobs more than $100,000 when he was fighting cancer five years ago1 is available today for less than $1,000. Yet, as with any technological advance, successfully realizing the promise of genomic medicine will require innovative approaches and a willingness to rapidly adapt to changes to ensure that clinically useful services are accessible to and implemented for the right individuals.
