Molecular diagnostic testing identifies molecular and genetic markers of an individual patient to determine the benefit of a specific treatment, or risk of developing a specific health condition.
“The goal of this white paper is to promote discussion and educate the market on issues impacting molecular diagnostic testing and reimbursement to help advance personalized medicine,” said Wolf. “The white paper will enable laboratory professionals and executives to access a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind resource to help make informed decisions regarding successful commercialization in the molecular diagnostics market.”
The white paper, hosted by Robert Michel, Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report and President of The Dark Intelligence Group, Inc., provides executives with a roadmap for guiding their companies to market while navigating the unique hurdles of the molecular diagnostic testing environment. “Molecular diagnostics is growing at a very fast rate and has the potential to significantly impact disease management and individual patient outcomes,” stated Michel. “This white paper discusses many of the trends and challenges molecular diagnostics testing companies confront when they are ready to commercialize their new assays and enter into a highly competitive market. The information provided will help companies assess their needs and develop appropriate strategies.”
Topics discussed in the white paper include:
- Go-to-market considerations, including how to establish clinical utility, calculate cost of goods and understand unique billing policies and regulations
- Reimbursement requirements and options
- Coverage and contracting factors
- Billing strategies: outsourcing vs. in-house
