Pathway Genomics to Offer Genetic Testing Services to Practice Fusion Members

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genetic testing laboratory Pathway Genomics today announced a partnership with Practice Fusion to offer its services to Practice Fusion's network of more than 150,000 medical professionals.

San Francisco-based Practice Fusion provides a free, web-based electronic medical record application to physicians. In a statement, Pathway Genomics Chief Medical Officer Michael Nova said that integrating his firm's services into Practice Fusion's EMR platform is a "critical step" in making actionable genetic information more accessible to physicians and patients.

Pathway conducts the analysis and interpretation of test results at its CLIA genetic testing lab and offers several DNA tests covering diet and exercise, drug response, carrier status, and complex health conditions.

Terms of today's agreement were not disclosed.

The deal follows an announcement in January by San Diego-based Pathway that it had joined Blue Shield's preferred provider organization network.
