The partnership between Myriad Genetics and Epic will facilitate the expansion of Myriad's customer-centric, technology-enabled commercial capabilities through over 600 EHR integrations.
Fremont, CA: “Our collaboration with Epic reflects our strategy to partner with other healthcare industry leaders so we can advance precision medicine together. Increasing access to genetic insights and integrating our tests into Epic's vast network of healthcare systems represents a significant step forward to better serve patients and healthcare providers," comments Paul J. Diaz, president, and CEO, of Myriad Genetics. Myriad Genetics, an industry leader in genetic testing and precision medicine, has collaborated with Epic, the top healthcare software company, to connect Myriad's comprehensive array of genetic tests with Epic's vast network of 600,000 clinicians and more than 250 million patients.
The connection enables a smooth, end-to-end workflow solution for healthcare providers to order Myriad testing and evaluate findings without additional stages or manual ordering. Epic facilitates the secure transmission of patient information across healthcare organizations.
With the ability to evaluate pertinent health information, order tests, and receive findings natively within Epic, doctors will have access to the genetic insights and related information necessary to improve health outcomes and the patient experience. In addition, patients will have easy access to their Myriad test results and other health information via their EHR site.
As part of its transformation and growth strategy, Myriad is emphasizing the development of customer-centric, technology-enabled products that simplify genetic testing for patients and physicians. With the recent introduction of Myriads Precise Oncology Solutions, providers may now submit a single order for several Myriad tests and obtain rapid results via a centralized web platform. Now, through the agreement with Epic, Myriad is expanding its efforts to enable clinicians and health organizations to gain faster and more convenient access to genetic testing within their existing platform.
“Genetic testing and precision medicine save lives,” states Alan Hutchison, vice president of Population Health at Epic. “Through this relationship, were bringing genetic insights to the point of care at scale, giving providers and patients the information they need to make more timely, informed decisions.”
