“With the increase in coverage and improved reimbursement, access to genetic counseling telehealth services allows patients an affordable way to discuss their risk, treatments, and testing options with an expert from home.”
NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 29, 2020
The 'Cancer Care' campaign, publishing as a special section within Mediaplanet's overall Personal Health campaign, will bring awareness and education on the future of cancer care for cancer patients, caregivers, survivors and healthcare professionals. The campaign's content ranges from advancements in cancer care, community resources, support tools, and preventative screening measures. The campaign highlights the companies, technology and educational resources available, making cancer care in an era of COVID-19 possible. Clover Genetics joins the campaign to raise awareness for the right to affordable and universal access to genetic testing that is paramount to properly treating cancer.
Although, genetic testing has become increasingly available over the last decade, for many individuals access is not the only challenge. Until recently, individuals did not have access to in-depth information about improving their health based on their genetic risks or concerns. Clover Genetics utilizes telehealth to reach patients from all different backgrounds in order to guide them through their questions on genetics and genetic testing.
The campaign covers a range of cancer care related subject matters starting with the NIH and the link between COVID and cancer, building on success: addressing cancer survivorship, the future of personalized medicine and the significance of genetic testing.

With Clover Genetics' involvement in the campaign, readers will have access to much needed information regarding the possibilities of prevention and proper treatment with the wonders of genetic testing. As covered in the campaign, many patients never receive information on their genetic testing options and are left in the dark about their genetic health concerns. Without understanding how genetic testing provides awareness regarding the risk of disease, cancer, medication metabolism, and other health concerns, patients may not be utilizing these resources
In addition, often, healthcare providers do not have in-depth training in genetics to answer these questions and recommend the proper genetic tests. Clover Genetics can work with doctors and patients to provide guidance on genetic risk factors, preventative healthcare, treatment options, and testing options.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, many local and state governments and insurance companies have modified their practices to improve coverage and access to telehealth services. With the increase in coverage and improved reimbursement, access to telehealth genetic counseling services allows patients an affordable way to discuss their risk, potential treatments, and testing options with an expert, all from home.
With so much uncertainty with healthcare, genetic counseling and testing is a way to provide clarity and take control of your health. Oftentimes, genetic testing results in lifesaving information that can help prevent high-risk cancers, provide more customized treatments for health conditions, and give answers to those living without health problems.
