An Analysis of Clinical Documentation Submitted with Diagnostic Exome Sequencing Orders and the Added Burden or Benefit of Insurance Billing

  • This project is an exploration of practices, variables and impact of submitting clinical documentation for diagnostic exome sequencing (DES)
  • Cases with an insurance bill type were more likely to have the necessary clinical documentation submitted with DES orders and were also more likely to have a relevant finding reported when compared to cases with an institutional bill type, although statistical significance could not be reached
  • Approximately 1 out of 4 DES orders required follow-up by laboratory personnel to request missing clinical items
