NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Phosphorus, a computational genomics company based in New York, announced today the formal launch of its Elements software suite to power diagnostic genetic testing for laboratories, hospital networks, and other health centers. The platform consists of 6 distinct modules to manage logistics, accessioning, lab tracking, bioinformatics, variant curation, and reporting. The suite is one component of a broader in-house testing partnership offered by Phosphorus, which also includes predesigned sequencing assays, reimbursement consulting, and operational assistance.
Phosphorus has designed Elements software for the modern clinician, allowing clinical partners worldwide to benefit from increased agility and adaptability. To that extent, the software is built with specific considerations in mind, including full HIPAA compliance, scalability, security, intuitive dashboards, and highly customizable algorithms, forms, and workflows. In addition, Elements easily integrates with existing workplace systems, such as legacy variant data annotations, EMR systems, and more. All product highlights are offered alongside outstanding and responsive customer service, from guidance on SOPs to billing assistance and beyond.
SaaS solutions to in-house genetic testing are relatively new, having appeared concurrently with the dramatic decrease of genome sequencing costs over the last decade. Phosphorus' entry into the SaaS market is focused on the promise of a superior user experience packaged in an out-of-the-box, ready-to-use clinical tool for the genetic testing process. The Elements suite is being formally debuted at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida today, October 17.
"Implementation of a Precision Medicine strategy is still a huge challenge for most hospitals and health systems," said Alexander Bisignano, co-founder and CEO of Phosphorus. "A strong genomics core at the center of any strategy is really important, and with our Elements software, the challenges and costs of bringing clinical testing in-house are significantly reduced."
Alongside Elements software, Phosphorus offers a catalogue of diagnostic genetic tests in a variety of specialty areas, all designed for complete compatibility with the newly-released Elements software platform. The affordable diagnostic tests are built upon expert-curated panels, powerful data analytics, a simple testing workflow, and rigorous variant interpretations to ensure the most accurate results for patients. "Our portfolio of diagnostic products, paired with Phosphorus Elements software, is the first end-to-end solution enabling laboratories and medical centers to easily build and expand their precision medicine capabilities," Bisignano stated.
