Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings announced an expansion of its long-standing partnership with the Perinatal Quality Foundation (PQF) to collaborate on a new strategic initiative focused on noninvasive prenatal screening, the Genetic Education Module (GEM). PQF’s GEM initiative will provide education to help patients and healthcare providers better understand the benefits and limitations of noninvasive prenatal screening and how to interpret the results of that screening. GEM will also build a patient registry designed to correlate the results of noninvasive prenatal testing with the results of confirmatory diagnostic tests, such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis, as well as post-partum outcomes. In addition, the initiative will help develop processes for credentialing healthcare personnel in the delivery of pre- and post- screening information. LabCorp and PQF are committed to improve patient outcomes and lives, while lowering costs, through expanded access to emerging healthcare technologies, such as their existing work on PQF’s Nuchal Translucency Quality Review program, which provides education and credentialing for sonographers and physicians involved in first trimester risk assessment.
