The Genetic Testing Unit (GTU) is a five-digit alphanumeric character sequence for every uniquely marketed test, even after the test is no longer available. The industry should adopt this coding system as a standard today – so we can move forward.
As we approach the various stakeholders in this issue, what questions should we address to achieve the adoption of the GTU ID? Here is my initial list. Please provide your feedback below, and together, let’s get commitments from X12, labs, insurance companies, and healthcare systems to make this genetic test ID coding system become widely adopted.

The current lack of an ID for each unique genetic test raises the possibility of confusion among clinicians ordering tests and laboratories reporting them. This
The adoption of clinical genomics as standard of care has been slow. In this blog post, we will examine the major issues affecting clinical adoption
