Shivom and Family Care Path Launch Genetic Counselling Pilot
Shivom Ventures Limited and Family Care Path have launched a Genetic Counselling Pilot in order to help patients from the United States have a deeper understanding of their genetic information through testing, counselling and the ties to family health history
London, United Kingdom and Cleveland, Ohio – July 1st, 2019 – Shivom Ventures Limited (“Shivom”), a biotechnology data and analysis company optimizing the way DNA is shared, secured and analyzed through blockchain and AI technology, and Family Care Path (FCP), a spin-off company from Cleveland Clinic, adapting and marketing web-based clinical decision support applications, have launched a telemedicine genetic counselling pilot today.
Shivom and Family Care Path will offer patients who have a family history of Cancer, Diabetes and or Cardiovascular issues genetic counselling sessions through CarePathConnect. These sessions will be available to purchase from Shivom’s shop for 1,000 tokens later next month. Following purchase, customers will be redirected to FCP’s MyLegacy application where they will be asked to fill out a unique health questionnaire. After the questionnaire has been completed, the patients will receive a Risk Assessment Report; this report will provide patients with an overview of their risk of inheriting certain genetic conditions. Once the patient has received their Risk Assessment Report they will be able to schedule a genetic counselling session with one of Family Care Path’s Genetic Counsellors. The pilot will only be available to patients who are living within the United States at this time.
“We are excited to partner with the unique offerings of Shivom to provide individuals with powerful information to understand their family health history tied to genetic and hereditary risks. Our genetic risk tool, MyLegacy, combined with the support of genetic counselors provides expanded depth to the blockchain and AI capabilities of Shivom. We are confident this dynamic information will be insightful and beneficial to the end-users and their physicians,” said David McKee, CEO and President of Family Care Path.
“For those who may be predisposed to or have a family history of cancer, diabetes or heart disease, undergoing genomic sequencing to gain additional insights may prove to be invaluable,” said Henry Ines, Chief Executive Officer of Shivom. “That said, interpreting sequencing results and understanding the appropriate therapeutic course of action may be challenging without the proper guidance from genomic counsellors. Accordingly, we are thrilled to work with Family Care Path, which maintains a network of certified, licensed clinical genetic counselors, who through the use of FCP’s proprietary risk assessment tools and its HIPAA compliant video telemedicine platform are able to help patients on a variety of critical matters ranging from better understanding potential risks associated with certain hereditary conditions, managing their health & wellness, mitigating against health risks to assessing the need for ordering additional genetic tests. We are excited to offer these additional resources to our customers in the US; eventually globally.”
