Results guides are optional handouts that you may choose to provide your patients who receive diagnostic and proactive testing with Invitae. Gene-specific guides provide information on what a positive result means for the patient and family, and guidance for medical management for associated disease.
The guides are designed to support your post-test counseling, and offer simple documentation that you can use as you discuss the results with your patient or that your patient might use to share their results with family members. The guides also aim to reinforce how important it is for a patient to work with you to understand their genetic testing results.
Results guides are appended to your reports by default. To change this setting, log in to Invitae’s portal, click on your name in the upper right, and then select Settings. Once there, navigate to the Report Settings tab and toggle the slider next to “Include results guides with reports.” Note that the guides are only available for diagnostic and proactive panel reports. They are not appended to reports for exome or reproductive health tests.
