how we help
For programs in need of genetics support, Advanced Tele-Genetic Counseling (AT-GC) provides virtual genomic health solutions with 24/7 access to a dedicated, nationwide, team of certified genetic counselors. AT-GC’s genetic counselors provide care for patients and assist with genetics-related support to providers and organizations.
Access to healthcare should not be dependent on where you live. With a long-term, global deficit of genetic counselors among increasing demand for genetics evaluations, AT-GC’s tele-genetic counseling support services are an essential tool for improving health equity across practices and for all patients. We are passionate about providing a solution by connecting patients and providers to qualified genetics professionals through telehealth.
AT-GC’s scalable approach to tele-genetic services provides ease of scheduling for patients who may otherwise lack the ability, time, or resources to meet with an in-person genetic counselor. For practices and larger health organizations, partnering with AT-GC means no more unfilled genetic counselor positions, no training and overhead, and no problems with retention. We’re ready to help, anytime, and anywhere.
Patients completing genetic counseling appointments with AT-GC genetic counselors report an accurate perception of their risks and often report that the experience exceeded their expectations. There is no difference in patient knowledge or satisfaction compared to in-person genetic counseling. Board-certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling, AT-GC’s genetic counselors each proudly uphold the title of American Board of Genetic Counseling Certified Genetic Counselor.
It is our goal to help increase access and to today’s top high-performing, knowledgeable genetic counselors for all who seek to know more about the influence of heredity on our personal well-being. AT-GC’s scalable platform and customizable workflows translates into substantial cost-savings for our patients and partners with personalized genetic solutions to meet the unique needs of our partner groups. AT-GC is dedicated to finding solutions to support patient care across our communities for all who need them.
