Recent technological advances have made it possible for clinicians to quickly sequence the genomes of critically ill newborns and children to rapidly make a diagnosis. This powerful technology can transform lives by identifying potentially lifesaving and life-changing medical treatment. However, despite the enormous promise of genome sequencing to improve health outcomes, not all patients who might benefit from this technology can access it.
This webinar will raise awareness about the clinical utility and lifesaving potential of clinical genome sequencing, as well as highlight coverage models for state Medicaid programs and private payors to help enable equitable access.
Closed captioning will be available through NIH VideoCast. Individuals with questions or needs for sign language interpretation or other reasonable accommodations should contact Monica Barnette at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-284-0226 at least 5 days in advance.
