Genomic Testing: Wamberg Genomic Advisors Partners with Global Healthcare Resources
U.S.-based Wamberg Genomic Advisors and Global Healthcare Resources in July 2017 announced a new partnership designed to bring genomic testing to insurance professionals and employer groups.
This partnership proposes to educate insurance professionals about the potential of genetic testing and integrating these tests into employee benefit packages, thereby creating a healthier workforce that is engaged in, and informed of, their health.
Advanced cancer genomic profiling uses techniques such as DNA sequencing to identify mutations found in a patients cancer that can add significantly to an oncologist’s ability to more rapidly identify the most effective treatment options. Genetic testing allows individuals to be informed of their current and future health status and can create a personalized health plan tailored to their unique genetic profile. It is hoped that this will empower individuals to engage in their health and make better decisions regarding their health, leading to reduced healthcare costs for employers.
Wamberg Genomic Advisors delivers genomic products and services to policyholders of life insurance companies, employers, and their employees via employee benefit brokers.
Global Healthcare Resources provides marketing and training services to policyholders of life insurance companies, employers, and their employees.
