SALT LAKE CITY, June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc., (NASDAQ: MYGN), a leader in genetic testing and precision medicine, today announced a partnership with Epic, the industry leading healthcare software company, to integrate Myriad’s full line of genetic tests with Epic’s expansive network of 600,000 physicians and more than 250 million patients.
The integration creates a seamless, end-to-end workflow solution for healthcare providers to order Myriad tests and review results directly within their everyday Epic platform without additional steps or manual ordering processes. Epic enables a secure exchange of information between healthcare institutions that care for patients.
With the ability to review pertinent health information, order tests, and receive results natively in Epic, providers will have the critical genetic insights and related information they need to drive better health outcomes and improve the patient experience. Patients will also be able to easily access their Myriad test results and other health information directly within their EHR portal.
“Simplifying the process of genetic testing by making it more accessible and interoperable with electronic health records is a key component of our mission to advance health and well-being for all,” said Paul J. Diaz, president and CEO, Myriad Genetics. “Our collaboration with Epic reflects our strategy to partner with other healthcare industry leaders so we can advance precision medicine together. Increasing access to genetic insights and integrating our tests into Epic’s vast network of healthcare systems represents a significant step forward to better serve patients and healthcare providers.”
As part of its transformation and growth plan, Myriad is focusing on new customer-centric, tech-enabled tools to make the genetic testing process easier for patients and clinicians. With the recent launch of Myriad’s Precise Oncology Solutions, providers can now place a single order for multiple Myriad tests and receive timely results through a unified online portal. Now, through the partnership with Epic, Myriad is expanding efforts to help physicians and health systems gain access to genetic testing faster and conveniently within the platform they use every day.
“Genetic testing and precision medicine save lives,” said Alan Hutchison, vice president of Population Health at Epic. “Through this relationship, we’re bringing genetic insights to the point of care at scale, giving providers and patients the information they need to make more timely, informed decisions.”
Myriad’s integration with Epic is expected to go live later this year.
