St. Louis (April 9, 2019) - Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today announced a new partnership with Ambry Genetics, a leading clinical genetic testing company. The collaboration will enable Intalere to offer its healthcare providers access to state-of-the-art clinical genetic testing and family history assessment, so they may better identify and manage patients with a high risk for cancer due to an inherited genetic mutation through the Ambry CARE (Comprehensive Assessment, Risk, and Education) Program.

“Numerous studies have shown that individuals at high risk for inherited cancer are not receiving necessary and timely clinical genetic testing,” said Tom Schoenherr, chief commercial officer of Ambry Genetics. “Ambry Genetics’ CARE program is a unique, end to end, customizable program that’s designed to help healthcare systems address this problem. Through CARE, we are able to assess populations of at-risk groups, provide risk values, genetic testing if needed, and then, through genetic counseling, educate patients on how their results may impact their current and future health.”

The benefits of Ambry Genetics’ CARE program are aligned with the triple AIM of healthcare, in that they are designed to improve the patient experience, enhance the health of populations, and reduce the per capita cost of healthcare by identifying cancers early and reducing the long-term costs of patient care.

Specifically, the CARE Program will benefit providers and patients by:

  • Providing personalized cancer risk information.
  • Making recommendations for increased screening based on national guidelines.
  • Identifying family members who may also be at risk.
  • Integrating seamlessly into existing workflows.

Schoenherr stressed that the CARE program is customizable. “We understand that health systems all have unique needs and requirements, so we provide a dedicated team of specialists who evaluate where and how to best implement these programs.”

Shon Wettstein, vice president of business development at Intalere, views the partnership with Ambry as an excellent fit. “We continually seek to partner with like-minded organizations that set the highest standards in their industry,” said Wettstein. “Ambry provides unmatched accuracy and specificity in their testing, offering patients and their families the most reliable and comprehensive information to proactively evaluate risk and identify any areas of concern.”
