Your partner in personalised medicine.
It’s well known that prevention is better than cure. And that’s our mantra at geneType. Our tests help develop personalised, preventative health plans for your patients. By integrating your patient’s clinical, familial and genetic data, we deliver a personalised score for their risk of serious conditions. What’s more, we help you interpret your patient’s results in the context of your local guidelines.
GeneType provides a comprehensive risk assessment report that will assist you in developing a personalised health plan for your patients.
Key features of a geneType report include:
- Quick identification of your patient’s lifetime risk score and 5-, 8- or 10-year risk depending on the condition.
- Interpretation of these risk scores in the context of your local guideline recommendations to assist with clinical decision making about screening and risk-reducing strategies.
- A polygenic risk score: this score is based on genetic data and is integrated into the overall risk score. It is typically not included in traditional risk assessment models.
