The patient results guide is an optional handout that you may choose to provide your patients. It is offered for diagnostic panel reports only at this time.
Designed to support your post-test counseling, it offers 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 guide also aims to reinforce how important it is for a patient to work with you to understand their genetic testing results. Risk and/or treatment information are not addressed, and the guide does not contain any information that is not also included in the full report.

To include the patient results guide at the front of your reports, log in to Invitae’s portal, click on your name in the upper right, and then select Settings. Once there, you navigate to the Preferences tab and check the box that says “Include the patient results guide.” Note that this guide is only available for diagnostic panel reports. It will not be appended to reports for exome tests, reproductive health tests, or proactive tests.
