Genetic Test Assessment

Make more confident decisions on genetic and genomic tests with data-driven guidance

With high volumes of genetic tests available, it’s challenging to determine which genetic tests are backed by clinical evidence and which tests are backed only by hype.

Genetic Test Assessment is designed to guide utilization decisions on genetic, genomic, and proteomic tests. The curated database of the most clinically relevant tests provides regulatory and coverage status, insight on clinical validity and clinical utility, and useful overviews on a wide range of tests. Our experts continuously monitor the rapidly expanding genetic test marketplace to help health systems develop test formularies and utilization management processes, while payers can quickly determine which tests to cover and which laboratories to use.

Feel confident about your decisions by being able to answer:

  • Which genetic tests are most appropriate for patients?
  • Which genetic tests are backed by clinical utility evidence?

Features and services

A dynamic database with comprehensive test profiles

The Genetic Test Assessment platform is an interactive database that contains hundreds of clinical genetic test profiles and tools allowing users to compare multiple tests side by side.

Access key information, including test description and purpose, gene(s) and proteins comprising each test, diseases and conditions targeted by each test, regulatory and lab certification status, coverage policies, coding, and genetic test labs’ information.

Evidence reports and customized support

See current clinical evidence assessments about which tests are and are not backed by clinical utility evidence. Reports feature ECRI’s signature Evidence Bar™ graphic, which provides a bottom-line rating of the evidence on how well each test works based on the available clinical validity and utility data.

In the rapidly expanding field of genetic testing, Genetic Test Assessment helps simplify the complexities of genetic tests and transforms the unknown into the known.
