GeneMatters, Clear Genetics partner to offer genetic counseling via telehealth

GeneMatters and Clear Genetics joined forces to offer a service that combines chatbots with live genetic counselors to allow more patients to receive genetic counseling in a timely manner.

GeneMatters provides a telehealth genetic counseling service and online platform, while Clear Genetics offers genetic services software. The collaboration will bring together both companies' expertise.

Clear Genetics offers users a chatbot Gia, a scalable solution that uses patient's personal information to converse with them about their genetics. If a patient needs or wants a full genetic counseling session, Gia will help them schedule an appointment with a GeneMatters board-certified genetic counselor.

"We are thrilled to partner with GeneMatters and expand the services patients can access directly through our platform," said Moran Snir, CEO and co-founder of Clear Genetics. "This partnership allows us to provide a robust, turnkey solution for our customers looking to simplify the delivery of genetic services. From pretest to return of results and ongoing care, patients will have Gia at their fingertips and GeneMatters a phone call away."
