The use of technology in a healthcare setting can allow a patient, without local access to a geneticist, to engage with a genetics professional and it can allow a primary care provider to contact a genetics provider to become better equipped to provide care to an individual with a complex genetic disorder. NCC works with the seven RGNs, NGEFSC, HRSA, and national partners (such as the American Telemedicine Association) to support the training of genetics and non-genetic providers in telemedicine tools and work to develop health outcome measures that demonstrate the utility of telemedicine services.

All seven Regional Genetics Networks, NCC, and the Family Center, develop resources to help support patients and providers using telgenetics. Use the table below to access resources developed by our system.
