Multi Risk Test (Practitioners) USA - geneType

Make comprehensive risk assessment
part of your routine practice

Your patient may be eligible for two or more geneTypes.
Review the eligibility criteria for each below.

Proactive Healthcare

A wellness visit general health check is an opportunity to consider your patient’s ongoing health and motivate them to maintain healthy lifestyles and compliant screening practices.

Let geneType be a tool to enable preventative care discussions with your patient.

Engage your patient’s understanding of their personal risk of disease by communicating:

  • Value in screening compliance (based on current screening guidelines)
  • Available supplemental screening options 
  • Available risk reducing medication options 
  • Available lifestyle modifications to reduce disease-risk (e.g. smoking cessation, improved nutrition, reducing alcohol consumption, increased physical activity)

Incorporate geneType into your patient’s next wellness visit

While many risk assessments focus on family history and heritable genetic markers, geneType Multi-Risk Test goes beyond this by incorporating clinical, familial and genetic factors that affect disease risk.

Your patient’s risk assessment can then be used to develop a personalized, preventative health plan that includes screening, risk-reducing medication and/or lifestyle interventions. 

 

Actionable Clinical Insights

GeneType Reports reflect the tests that you requested on your patient’s clinical questionnaire. Reports are structured to make the results easy to interpret and communicate to your patients.

Reports include:

  • snapshot of your patient’s absolute risk scores
  • interpretation of what their risk scores mean in the context of current guidelines
  • polygenic risk score indicating your patient’s “baseline” risk for disease
  • information about modifiable risk factors
  • the types of disease-specific screening and risk-reduction interventions available to your patient
