PreventionGenetics celebrates 3rd anniversary with Seattle Children’s Pediatric Utilization Guidance Services Program Through Gold Sponsorship

Published on .

We’re excited to announce the continued collaboration between PreventionGenetics and the Seattle Children’s Pediatric Laboratory Utilization Guidance Services (PLUGSⓇ) program. For the third straight year, alongside ARUP and Mayo Medical Laboratories, PreventionGenetics is one of three Gold sponsors of the program.

The alliance is an ideal fit, with the two organizations sharing many common goals and values. Both are committed to utilization management (UM) and working to lower healthcare costs related to laboratory testing.

We are excited to share that our 2014 UM data has been accepted for publication.  Watch for our Article “Adding Value to Genetic Testing Through Utilization Management: Commercial Laboratory’s Experience” coming soon as a Research Letter in the American Journal of Medical Genetics Part A.

Beyond our support of UM through this sponsorship, PreventionGenetics is committed to internal UM practices. Laboratory stewardship is a shared goal and responsibility among our entire team. We recognize the importance of saving healthcare dollars and the impact this can have on patients who need genetic tests.

Happy Anniversary to our colleagues at PLUGSⓇ!
