New Partnership Strengthens ThinkGenetic’s Continued Effort to Reduce Time to Diagnosis
In an influential move for the genetics community, ThinkGenetic (ThinkGenetic.com) and Genome Medical (GenomeMedical.com), a nationwide specialty medical practice that is focused on genetics and genomics, have signed an agreement in support of those struggling to find a diagnosis or care for their genetic condition. The agreement expands upon the ThinkGenetic mission to provide trustworthy information to users and guide them to the help they need, faster.
ThinkGenetic continues to work with genetic counselors to enrich the trustworthy online knowledgebase used by those searching the web for the underlying causes of their health concerns. This past January, ThinkGenetic expanded its services with the release of the first online edition of ThinkGenetic SymptomMatcherTM. The personalized AI application guides users to find potential root causes for symptoms and provides actionable next steps. With the addition of Genome Medical, ThinkGenetic now has the ability to directly connect users in the United States with personalized clinical genetic counseling and testing services.
Expanding Services to Connect Users with Clinical Services
During the process of utilizing ThinkGenetic’s free services, such as exploring the condition knowledge base, using SymptomMatcher or contacting a ThinkGenetic Counselor, users will now have the ability to continue their digital experience with Genome Medical, a HIPAA-compliant telehealth service. On the ThinkGenetic site, users will have the expanded options to chat immediately with a care coordinator, schedule an appointment with a genetic expert, and learn more about potential testing services. The integrated services by Genomic Medical will include pre- and post-test counseling, test requisition, development of clinical action plans based on test results, and peer-to-peer consultations.
Genome Medical has a comprehensive care team featuring top genetic experts and primary care MDs—all dedicated to helping accelerate the integration of genetics into everyday health care. Their mission ties in closely with ThinkGenetic and will prove to be an integral part of providing a straightforward way for patients to find answers and the care they need.
In addition to this powerful start, ThinkGenetic and Genome Medical will have many other collaborations coming soon including educational events, genetic condition online communities, and much more. To learn more about these changes and what are ahead we encourage you to sign up for email updates. Starting in May you can view the changes yourself by visiting thinkgenetic.com.
