Experience with Healthy Individuals Pursuing Genomic Screening

November 2018

Advances in genome sequencing have allowed the public to pursue rapid, more available, and less costly genetic testing options. ‘Genetic wellness” has become more popular and proactive genomic screening is increasingly being explored by healthy individuals in order to reveal genetic insights into medically actionable outcomes. As a nationwide medical practice of genetic counselors and medical geneticists, we describe our experience providing responsible access to genomic information to apparently healthy individuals via assessment, counseling, test authorization, and clinical management using a telemedicine platform.
