I’m a healthcare provider outside of Stanford—how can I refer a patient for testing through the Clinical Genomics Program?

The Stanford Clinical Genomics Program is an internal service available to Stanford providers and patients. Therefore, testing through the Program can only be ordered by Stanford Health Care or Stanford Children’s Health providers. Currently, affiliated providers (example: UHA-United Healthcare Alliance) would need to first refer a patient to a Stanford Health Care provider.

Stanford launches New Clinical Genomics Program

On March 21, the leaders of Stanford Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children’s Health came together for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to launch the new Stanford Clinical Genomics Program. The program brings the diagnostic power of whole-exome sequencing to children and adults with undiagnosed genetic conditions.
