Ambry Genetics Cost-free Progeny Cloud

Ambry Genetics has launched Progeny Cloud, a cost-free version of Progeny Clinical, the most comprehensive genetic pedigree and clinical data management software available anywhere, built by Progeny Genetics  (a subsidiary of Ambry Genetics since April 2015). The product includes a family history questionnaire that allows patients themselves to build a more detailed and accurate record of their health history that is then integrated with genotype data and laboratory testing so clinicians can run Progeny's risk assessment algorithms. These algorithms give clinicians a clearer picture of the patients and family's health risks. Data are stored on individual secure and HIPAA-compliant servers in the Cloud.
