Clinic benefits     

 

Advanced knowledge

   Education icon   

Clinic physicians gain education and training in advanced use medical genomics that might not be easily accessible

           

Preventive care

   Stethoscope icon  

Medical DNA testing can be used to identify existing conditions or predisposition to conditions, allowing doctors to take preventative measures if intervention is available and provide the patient with advanced knowledge

           

Patient stratification

  Population icon  

For affected patients DNA testing can pinpoint the condition within broad spectrum category which could influence the patient management

           

Family history / referrals

  Pedigree icon  

All DNA testing prompts collection of valuable family history that might otherwise not be available to the physician. In addition, identification of pathogenic DNA alterations can result in cascade testing important to other family members

           

Modify patient lifestyle

  Behaviour icon  

DNA test results can act as a powerful incentive for patient adoption of healthy lifestyle choices recommended by the doctor

           

Competitive edge

  #1 icon  

While medical DNA testing is widely recognized for its importance, its use is still generally not adopted due to doctors’ limited background and training, providing the participating clinics a competitive advantage
