Genetic Alliance

Genetic Alliance announced this week the launch of a document repository service that aggregates healthcare information, including genetic testing guidances, from various stakeholders in industry, government, and patient advocacy organizations.
According to Genetic Alliance the so-called Resource Repository will also include information on health care funding, state and federal advocacy, and clinical trials.
“The Resource Repository is a dynamic digital library, created by the community, for the community – giving everyone access to a vast knowledge network,” said Sharon Terry, president and CEO of Genetic Alliance, a consortium of 600 member organizations. “We are excited to offer this nexus that will enable everyone to leverage communal resources.”
