New Genetic Insights

The CGI has posted four new genetic condition guidelines. These guidelines were created by the DYSCERNE group using a new approach utilizing multidisciplinary groups of practicing clinicians to review evidence and collaborate on the best patient management options. This system results in validated and specific guidelines to benefit patient care.

A study led by CGI's Jim (James) Gudgeon has been published in the August edition of The American Journal of Managed Care. With other researchers and clinicians at Intermountain, this study developed a system for screening colon cancer patients with existing genetic tests to determine if patients have Lynch Syndrome, an inherited syndrome that increases cancer risk significantly.
