In the next 10 years, it’s estimated that genomics data could account for up to 40 exabytes of data per year alone. To put this in perspective, 1 exabyte is equal to 1 billion gigabytes. That’s a whole lot of data that will need to be tracked, segmented, and stored for claims submissions and reimbursements.
In recent years it’s become less and less expensive to perform next-gen sequencing to gather genomic data, and the data itself has become increasingly more critical to clinicians and researchers who are continuing to grow their demand for this type of testing. The revenue potential of sequence-based testing is very clear. To ensure your lab is able to accommodate genomics data, a flexible LIS is critical to your NGS strategy.
