OAKLAND, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fabric

Medical announced today that they have entered into a

partnership with the goal of bringing expert medical interpretation and

counseling around genomic data directly to physicians and patients.

Genome Medical will use Fabric Genomics’ clinical interpretation

platform, Fabric

Enterprise™, for ongoing examination of its patients’ genomic data

to augment data analysis and annotation in collaboration with its

laboratory partners. News of the partnership will be highlighted this

week at the AGBT

Ohio.

Cost-effective sequencing can now yield insight into diseases that are

amenable to prevention as well as to precise intervention. While the

tools for sequencing are readily available, resources for interpreting

results and helping patients understand the information are less

accessible.

Through this partnership, Genome Medical’s expert team of physicians and

genetic counselors will be able to turn to Fabric Enterprise to augment

the information provided to individuals and clinicians. Genome Medical’s

workflow will now provide an end-to-end offering by helping patients and

physicians decide whether they need a test, how to order the right test,

interpreting the results, integrating the results into subsequent

medical decisions, and reinterpreting DNA over the course of treatment

if applicable.

“By combining our expertise in genome interpretation with Genome

Medical’s team of physicians and genetic counselors, we can offer

patients and physicians a clinical solution by combining genomic

knowledge with patient care to improve their health,” explains Martin

Reese, Ph.D., CEO at Fabric Genomics. “Genome Medical brings a critical

missing link to patients through their world-class genetic medical

expertise, plus a strong medical practice foundation. This partnership

is key to helping both patients and clinicians understand their genetic

variants and discover if they have a disease, or are at risk of

developing a disease.”

“Year by year, our knowledge about how genetics affects health and our

ability to apply this knowledge to improve patient health grows

dramatically,” said Steven Bleyl, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer at

Genome Medical. “We believe genomic medicine is a lifelong journey. To

that end, it will be increasingly important that our clinicians have the

right tools to view, query, interpret and re-interpret our

patients’ genetic information over time. We have partnered with Fabric

Genomics to meet that crucial need.”
