Telemedicine services use secure technology to provide patients access to health care from medical professionals—think face-to-face video, email, texting, shared imaging, apps and more. Telemedicine services remove the need for an in-person visit. Genome Medical uses its telemedicine approach to benefit patients, families and health systems by connecting them to clinical experts in genomic medicine.

Telemedicine services for medical genetics services (telegenetics) can be used to:

  • Improve access to specialized medical care — genetics specialists are not available in some areas

  • Reduce appointment wait times — telegenetics can chip away at patient backlogs within hospitals and health systems

  • Offer convenience and give time back to families — no travel is needed to attend virtual appointments, which use flexible scheduling

  • Lower costs — no parking, childcare or other costs are needed to attend virtual appointments

  • Minimize health risks to/from others — no time is spent in a medical professional’s or hospital’s waiting room with virtual appointments

Many, but not all, appointments are possible using telemedicine. For example, an appointment requiring a detailed physical examination would need an in-person visit. Genome Medical’s genomic medicine specialists have always practiced using telegenetics. As such, the team knows the limitations of telegenetics and are well positioned to deliver appropriate genomic care in this way.

Genome Medical routinely offers telegenetics, such as specialized genetic counseling with one of its board-certified genetic counselors, to individuals nationwide.
