GeneMatters Automation for Pioneer Telegenetics Platform and RISE Patient Engagement Tools

GeneMatters has added automation features to its Pioneer Telegenetics Platform and has launched RISE Patient Engagement Tools to support patients undergoing genetic testing and counseling.

The Pioneer Telegenetics Platform, available since 2017, is designed to integrate telehealth genetic counseling service delivery and patient management. The platform now includes several automation features designed to reduce administrative burden, provide real-time communication, and allow GeneMatters to quickly deploy custom workflows to meet partner needs.

The RISE (Reach, Inform, Support, and Educate) Patient Engagement Tools specifically support patients and can be used independently or as a complement to Pioneer, and will include modules for genetic care such as scheduling, patient triage, patient education, and results delivery.
