NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Xifin, a healthcare cloud computing company, has signed an agreement with Translational Software to integrate Translational's pharmacogenetics knowledgebase and interpretation platform with Xifin LIS Anywhere, its laboratory information system.
According to the partners, combining their products will provide molecular diagnostics laboratories with a complete, seamless solution that supports their efforts to determine the most effective treatments for patients based on treatment guidelines, recommendations, regulatory filings, and more.
The combined system will include features for ordering tests, interpreting results, and managing laboratory workflow, as well as offer capabilities for billing, and financial management, the partners said. Users will also have access to features for generating reports containing information on the genetic factors that affect the efficacy and toxicity of drugs as well as risk factors relevant to patient's health in order to guide clinical decision making.
