Embracing High-Impact Applications of Molecular Diagnostics

Efficient, cost-effective uses continue to emerge

Molecular diagnostics enable hospital-based laboratories to provide high-impact patient care services that protect and promote the quality and safety of patient care. Pathologist Karen L. Kaul, MD, PhD, FCAP, discusses why some of the emerging uses of molecular diagnostics at NorthShore University HealthSystem are efficient and cost effective and provide value to both the patient and institution.

Molecular testing has developed so rapidly because it provides information not available any other way using methods that are better, faster, or cheaper than the alternatives.
