Develop Programs To Speed Diagnosis
Getting the right diagnosis can take many years, especially for rare diseases. Your patient group can develop programs that speed diagnosis, including outreach programs to healthcare professionals or public awareness campaigns. Diagnostic and screening programs can be developed to diagnose all those who may benefit from a newly approved therapy (including drugs, biologics, and medical devices). Depending on the optimal age for treatment, you may work to have your disease added to newborn screening programs. Because the steps to diagnosing a disease can vary greatly, the strategies you use to make certain all who will benefit from a newly approved therapy will vary as well.
