Integrate Genetic Services into Your Practice
The future is here. Learn how Vibrant Gene can help you make cutting-edge, appropriate genetic services available to your patients.
Genetics in preventative care and wellness
Recent advances in medical research have identified genetic markers associated with many complex health conditions. Vibrant Gene is a genetic counseling practice, focused on utilizing DNA testing for preventative care. One Canadian study demonstrated that 93% of patients who were given these tests reported feeling motivated to make key lifestyle changes.
In the 1970s, only Orthodox Jews in New York City could receive genetic screening, and it was limited to Tay Sachs carrier testing. Thankfully, preconception counseling is now available to patients of all ethnicities, regardless of family history.
Through Vibrant Gene, your patients can explore their carrier status for over 100 genetic disorders, thus reducing the risk of having a baby with a condition of high mortality or morbidity. Vibrant Gene can also help empower them by delivering thorough guidance throughout the process.
Adverse drug reactions cause over 100,000 deaths annually in the United States alone. Vibrant Gene can help predict how patients may react to a specific drug or class of drugs based on their genetic traits. Pharmacogenetics can dramatically decrease hospitalizations and health care costs. Patients who utilize pharmacogenetic testing are also more likely to adhere to recommendations.
Genetic test interpretation
Many genetic testing companies do not offer pre-test or post-test genetic counseling services. Patients can be left with many unresolved questions and no source for answers. Vibrant Gene can interpret test results, suggest follow-up testing (when appropriate) and make important referrals.
