SAN FRANCISCO, California and NEW YORK, New York, July 25, 2019 – Hygea Precision Medicine, Inc. (Hygea), a company focused on developing a precision medicine software system for healthcare providers and patients to effectively manage genetic testing, and Phosphorus, a leader in diagnostic and bioinformatic solutions for clinical next generation sequencing (NGS), are pleased to announce a formal, agreed partnership. In addition, technical integration between the two platforms has been successfully completed.
Eyal Odiz, CEO and Co-Founder of Hygea, commented, “The integration with Phosphorus allows us to greatly simplify the process of ordering genetic tests by making it fully digital. Providers are notified when test results are ready and can easily access and share the results with their patients and other physicians. The Phosphorus integration coupled with Hygea’s proprietary software that guides providers to order the most accurate gene panel per clinical guidance gives the providers the confidence to order genetic testing as part of their day to day practice. This first partnership with Phosphorus marks a new phase for Hygea as we move forward in paving the way for this growing market.”
Alexander Bisignano, CEO and Co-founder of Phosphorus added, “We are proud to be Hygea’s first partner as they enter the precision medicine space. Hygea’s sophisticated platform bridges the gap between patient and physician to provide quality medical care at the earliest stage to the people who need it. This strategic partnership allows our companies to take full advantage of the significant drop in sequencing costs to provide patients with the most up to date knowledge of their genetic data.”
