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.

Preventive care visits are an important tool available to physicians to promote patient understanding of:

  • The factors that influence their health and wellbeing throughout their lives.
  • Lifestyle modifications to reduce disease-risk (e.g. smoking cessation, improved nutrition, reducing alcohol consumption, increased physical activity)
  • Risk assessment to engage in enhanced screening and risk-reduction opportunities (e.g. for cancer, coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes)
  • Participate in screening (e.g. for breast and colorectal cancers)

Incorporate geneType into your patient’s next general health check

While many risk assessments focus on family history and heritable genetic markers², geneType Multi 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 personalised, preventative health plan that includes screening, risk-reducing medication and/or lifestyle interventions. 

 

 GeneType testing is simple

Step 1

Register as a provider; our team will provide clinical education and other resources as needed.

GeneType will send kits to your clinic to have on hand.

Step 2

Discuss geneType with your patient.

Would geneType help her qualify for additional risk reduction strategies?

Step 3

Complete the Test Requisition form, collect a sample from the patient in the saliva tube provided and return both to geneType.

You will have the option to use a paper requisition, or a secure, HIPAA-compliant portal to complete the ordering process.

Step 4

Leave the rest to us.

GeneType will notify you when your patient’s results are ready.

You will have the option to request a consult with a genetic counsellor,  whether to review your patient’s results and/or to follow-up with your patient, as needed.

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

We have developed a Guide to help you navigate the geneType tests.
