Lucid Genetics Introduces Telegenetics, Giving Patients the Ability to Consult Live with Boarded Physicians about Genetic Medicine(March 08, 2018)
SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) March 08, 2018
Lucid Genetics, Corp., a telemedicine practice today announced a new telegenetics service, a telemedicine based, nationwide medical practice framework designed to reach patients who are concerned about medical history, genetic-based cancer, heart disease, as well as rare disease and whole exome sequences. The practice is designed to help patients experience a faster and more accurate diagnosis. Lucid Genetics employs board certified, licensed physicians who meet with the patient one-on-one via live video conference to go over medical history and then decide what tests might be best for the patient. World-class genetic testing labs are employed by specialty, to produce the most accurate tests available on the planet. Patients decide if they want to share any data or results and how their data is shared.
If tests are deemed medically needed and ordered by the physician, then patients have a second meeting to go over the test results via live video conference with a licensed, ABGC Certified Genetic Counselor (CGC®) with the patient. If needed, the patient shall be referred to a specialist in the local area for further diagnostics and best treatment options.
Today, these same genetic tests are being used by top medical universities and specialty centers nationwide; however, access to this level of diagnostic tool is very limited and often takes months or years to access. Physician ordered tests take between two weeks to two months to complete and can offer the patient the answers they are seeking about long-term health in a short amount of time.
Apple® is a major supplier for Lucid Genetics and the latest iPad® and iPhone® technology has been integrated into physician/patient workflow. As a medical practice, Lucid Genetics is fully run on AdvancedMD electronic medical record system (http://www.advancedmd.com). Lucid is also employing some of the world's best technology and diagnostic tools to include FACE2GENE software (http://www.face2gene.com) and Isabel differential diagnostic software (http://www.isabelhealthcare.com).
Lucid Genetics is offering (physician ordered) one of the most comprehensive and accurate whole exome sequence available today. Highly sensitive and specific detection with 99.7% sensitivity and >99.99% specificity. The patient self pay price including physician consultation and genetic counseling consultation is $2,985.00.
