Genetic Testing

To improve the quality of genetic testing in Michigan, BCBSM created the Genetic Testing Resource and Quality Consortium (GTRQC) Pilot.

Currently, this pilot is developing software tools aimed at improving the quality of care for patients who may be at elevated risk for hereditary cancer syndromes.  One of the goals of the pilot is to determine practical uses for these tools in physicians’ offices. This could result in a in a future expansion of the project.

Results

This is a new initiative. Due to the type of data collected, as well as factors such as length of treatment, timing rules and tracking of patient outcomes, it takes time for the dataset to mature and become robust enough to allow analysis and produce results.
