Weston Smith cites the example of Jelena Aleksic, who founded GeneAdviser, a company formed to provide access to genetic diagnostics for rare disease.
GeneAdviser is a simple, secure, online catalogue of genetic tests. Doctors will be able to find, order and pay for tests online with a user-friendly shopfront and secure transfer of payments and patient data.
We’re working in partnership with world-renowned genetic testing laboratories, like the NHS Genomic Medicine Centre at Addenbrooke’s here in Cambridge, so doctors can be confident that any tests they order through us will be accurate and reliable.
Our powerful and flexible system suits a wide range of clinicians. A specialist might already know what they want to test, so we’ll make it easy for them to quickly find it, order and pay.
On the other hand, a GP might never have seen a patient with a rare disease before, so we’ll provide extra information to guide them through the process and help them choose the most appropriate test.
Our aim is to expand the pool of clinicians who feel confident ordering genetic tests so that patients can get diagnostic answers sooner. While we were inspired by the unmet need in rare disease research, this technology has lots of potential in paediatrics, neurology and cancer medicine.
