Development of a strong clinical program for diagnostic tests requires consideration and integration of key strategic drivers such as clinical adoption, reimbursement, & regulatory filing based on a proposed indication for use.  In considering the appropriate use of new tests, clinicians and health care policymakers must consider the accuracy with which a test identifies a patient’s clinical status (clinical validity), the risks and benefits resulting from test use (clinical utility), and the medical value of the test (health economics/outcomes). This workshop will provide a basic framework for establishing comprehensive clinical evidence based on analytical validity, clinical validity, clinical utility, and health economics and effectiveness, and utilize a case study of the 92-gene assay, CancerTYPE ID to build these points.
