UM Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center Updates
UM GCCC has recently partnered with Progeny Genetics, a cloud based software system that streamlines the process of managing family history, assessing risk and complimenting the decision making process involved with deciding on the treatment options for our patients. This new software will enable patients the opportunity to collect family history information online prior to the practice visit with the genetic counselor. It will also support our clinical experts by running validated hereditary cancer risk assessment models to assist in the development of their treatment plans. Nick Jaidar, director of oncology operations, and genetic counselors from UM BMWC, UMMC and UM SJMC are actively working on the implementation phase of the software system and hope to bring this resource to our patients by late spring of 2018.
