Evaluation of Genomic Applications in Practice and Prevention (EGAPP™)


Fact Sheet: Identifying Opportunities to Improve Health and Transform Healthcare [PDF 139.91 KB]


In 2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the EGAPP initiative to establish and test a systematic, evidence-based process for evaluating genetic tests and other applications of genomic technology that are in transition from research to clinical and public health practice. 

A key EGAPP goal is to provide objective, timely, and credible information that is clearly linked to available scientific evidence. This information will allow health care providers and payers, consumers, policymakers, and others to distinguish genetic tests that are safe and useful.
