S P E C I A L A N N O U N C E M E N T – Genomic/Molecular Tumor Testing for Patients-
At no cost to patients
A briefing of what Perthera provides, plus Q & A – an initial introduction to molecular testing offered to patients through this program:
Perthera delivers our Precision Oncology services at no cost to patients or oncologists. Our clinical coordination, aIl and data analytics, molecular tumor board, and Report delivery are all included in our concierge services. In addition, Perthera’s analysis adds less than 3 days on average to the overall turnaround time from referral to report delivery.
Perthera is diligent about obtaining patient consent for any data required to provide our services. Our Clinical Coordinators are best in class at communicating with patients and answering any and all questions they might have. Our Medical Director is also available to answer questions that any Physicians/Oncologists might have as well, either before or after ordering a Perthera Report. Our precisely ranked therapeutic recommendations have been clinically proven (in The Lancet Oncology) to improve patient outcomes and extend lives.
Q & A:
1. What lab does the testing? How many mutations do they test for?
As you know, Perthera is not a Lab. We are Lab agnostic and will use the ordering Oncologist’s preferred Lab or one of our own. The ordering physician determines how many panels/mutations they would like us to test. Lab testing is put through a patient’s insurance, often with no balance billing. With a 1 page order form from the patient’s oncologist, the molecular testing is usually covered by the patient’s insurance. Patient communication is very transparent about this.
2. How much does it cost?
As stated above, Perthera delivers our Precision Oncology services at no cost to patients or oncologists.
3. Is the patient’s data confidential or do they sell it?
We fully comply with all HIPAA requirements and maintain strict confidentiality with all patient data.
