Doing the Math for Genetic Counseling and Clinical Trials
Thursday, July 30 at 12:00 pm EDT
Accreditation by the College of Surgeons (ACOS) requires a cancer program to offer genetic counseling and to enroll at least 6% of patients in clinical trials. Unfortunately, counseling is rarely covered by insurance, and while the clinical care is covered for research patients, the expense of conducting that research is not. This webinar will address costs and revenue for both genetic counseling and clinical trials. What are the costs to start up these programs? What are the expenses associated with maintaining them? Is there enough direct revenue or downstream financial return to fully cover costs and how can you measure it?
OMC GROUP is thrilled to introduce our esteemed Guest Speakers for this webinar:
