How it Works
Easy Guided Health History
FamGenix guides you in adding your family members and tracking important health history data points needed to evaluate your risks for hereditary disease.
You can record disease history for you and all your family members – parents, grandparents, spouses, children, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and even cousins and nephews/nieces. You can easily update data or add family members at any time.
Share Data with Family Members and Apply Sharing Controls
Sometimes, you need help with filling out health data on your family members. FamGenix makes it easy by allowing you to invite other family members to fill out their own family history data. Each time you invite a family member and they accept, a new account is created for that member.
You’re always in charge of your data and with whom you wish to share. You can grant permission to share your family data updates, as well as whether you would like to receive updates from that person.
Assess Your Risk for Inherited Disease
Once you’ve completed your family health history, the app will display your level of risk for hereditary cancer. This risk is based on whether you meet established clinical guidelines for additional genetic counseling or testing. You can then discuss this with your healthcare provider or genetic counselor and resources are available to you to learn more.
