NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – 23andMe today announced it is using the services of Informed Medical Decisions to provide genetic counseling to new and existing customers of its Personal Genome Service.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
23andMe customers can choose from two levels of genetic counseling from Informed Medical Decisions, also called InformedDNA. Those seeking general information can access the Personal Genome Service. Customers wanting a more thorough review of their family and medical history, or if their genetic tests indicate they carry variants with potentially serious health implications, can access the Comprehensive Clinical Genetic Counseling service.
Informed Medical Decisions, based in St. Petersburg, Fla., is a nationwide network of genetic counselors. In January, it announced a partnership with consumer genetics information company AccessDNA to provide telephone genetic counseling.
