Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and U-M Health System launch statewide initiative to evaluate and improve genetic testing

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the U-M Health System are collaborating with physicians and laboratories across the state as part of a new initiative to improve genetic testing practices.

Called the Genetic Testing Resource and Quality Consortium, this initiative will help medical professionals determine whether genetic testing should be used in common clinical scenarios, and which tests will benefit patients the most. Participants also will develop best practices for performing the tests, improving testing quality and advising patients on genetic testing recommendations.
