Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Hayes, Inc., a research and consulting firm dedicated to improving the quality and value of healthcare through the use of evidence, is pleased to announce the launch of a new service designed to assist health plans in the development of evidence-based coverage policies for genetic, genomic, and proteomic tests.
“We realize that reviewing the medical need for genetic tests and trying to write coverage policies for these complex assays and conditions can be a daunting task,” says Dr. Diane Allingham-Hawkins, Director, Hayes Genetic Test Evaluation (GTE) Program. “Our genetic test experts analyze the evidence behind these molecular tests to provide payers with the clarity and guidance they need to make informed decisions about when and how these tests should be used. With our coverage policy support, payers can be assured that their business decisions about paying for and managing genetic, genomic, and proteomic tests are based on the most current information available.”
In addition to providing coverage policy support, Hayes GTE Program offers health technology assessments and evidence reviews for a wide variety of genetic diseases and tests, including those associated with all of the > 100 molecular CPT codes newly implemented by the AMA in 2012.
Hayes, Inc., an internationally recognized leader in health technology research and consulting, is dedicated to the delivery of high-quality healthcare and improved outcomes through the integration of evidence into decision making and policy development. The unbiased information and comparative-effectiveness analyses we provide enable evidence-based decisions about acquiring, managing, and paying for health technologies. Our worldwide clients include hospitals, healthcare systems, government agencies, health plans, and employers. Hayes, Inc. is a certified woman-owned small business (WOSB).
