Color Genomics

Color is opening a lab dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 testing and adapting its software infrastructure to enable physicians to order tests and return results.

Many companies and counselors see the COVID-19 pandemic as a catalyst for moving germline risk testing into a digital-first healthcare model.

After pilot programs showed patients and physicians are interested in genomics, NorthShore is working on "hardwiring" genetics into routine care.

The financing round comes as Color expands its partnerships with healthcare systems and builds out a national genetic counseling resource for NIH's All of Us program.

The multistate rural health system will adopt Color technology to move to NGS and enhance online engagement for its Imagenetics clinical genomics program.

CNBC reports Apple is partnering with Color Genomics to offer its employees free DNA screening for disease.

The researchers believe their findings could be used to change how patients' risk for breast cancer, colon cancer, or heart disease is calculated.

Members, spouses, and adult dependents from 13 locals will have access to Color's genomic services, including physician-ordered genetic tests.

Findings of a new study point to the need for technological solutions and education to improve local healthcare providers' ability to discuss genetic information with patients.

Despite the step-up in FDA action against labs offering PGx tests, the success of these programs suggests that access to them isn't being stifled as some feared.
