Deborah Schofield

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


Rare genetic disorders can have devastating health impacts on patients. A sometimes overlooked area of significant impact is the cost of the disorders. The results of a study of the relative cost of exome sequencing compared to usual care are presented, along with a review of the breadth of the costs of monogenic childhood disorders both within and beyond the health system.
