|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
The Company has two operating segments for which it recognizes revenue; Clinical Services and Pharma Services. Our Clinical Services segment provides various clinical testing services to community-based pathology practices, hospital pathology labs and academic centers with reimbursement from various payers including client direct billing, commercial insurance, Medicare and other government, and patients. Our Pharma Services segment supports pharmaceutical firms in their drug development programs by supporting various clinical trials and research.
In the fourth quarter of 2017, changes were made in the information provided to our Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”); greater detail was provided regarding the performance of our Pharma business and our Clinical business as there was an increased focus on this financial data due to the growth of our Pharma business. Our CODM also changed the way he was using this financial information to make strategic decisions regarding allocation of resources and evaluating performance of the Company. This resulted in a change in our operating segments to align with how the CODM views our business which resulted in two operating segments; a Pharma Services segment and a Clinical Services segment.
We have presented the financial information reviewed by the CODM including revenues, cost of revenue and gross margin for each of our operating segments. The segment information presented in these financial statements has been conformed to present segments on this revised basis for all prior periods. Assets are not presented at the segment level as that information is not used by the CODM.
The following table summarizes segment information for the six month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively (in thousands).
