Genetic counseling is a very specialized healthcare profession that provides evaluation of an individual or a family’s risk of a hereditary disease and detailed explanations about the results of a genetic test. Most genetic counseling programs only provide in person services in various healthcare institutions. There are only few tele genetic counseling programs where patients and patient families can request appointment to see a genetic counselor via a screen at anywhere anytime. Among the few tele genetic counseling programs, there are even fewer programs that specifically target individual and families whose first language is not English but Mandarin Chinese.
Clarity aims to fill in the gaps in providing services for English and Mandarin Chinese speaking individual and families who are seeking help in understanding their genetic risk and or are looking to learn more about hereditary diseases. Through the website, patients are able to make online appointment for a genetic counselor, learn more about hereditary diseases through the educational articles, video, podcast, resources, and current genetic counseling guidelines and recommendation provided in our educational Material page.
We believe in the development of quality and efficiency of the new health care services, and we value clarity and transparency in the delivery of our services.
