Palo Alto – June 14, 2021 – In our second episode of “The Women in Health-Tech” series, my guest is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Genome Medical, Lisa Alderson.
Genome Medical is an innovative digital health company focusing on genetics and genomics. They provide genomic insights as a service with the mission to make personalized medicine accessible to everyone.
The latest wave of COVID has impacted health care in ways that are quite concerning. Most patients who could benefit from genetic care are not being identified as part of their primary and even specialty care. Patients have deferred routine medical care, including cancer screenings, which means we are not identifying and finding cancers early. We will now be diagnosing cancer at a later stage, and that will tax the health care system.
Lisa explains why Genome Medical invested so heavily in 2020 in the development of 100% virtual platform for patient engagement, assessment and care navigation so that they will be able to accelerate the identification of those at elevated risk for cancer and provide information that empowers the individual to seek medical care and seek it early.
