New AncestryHealth Services Use Genetics to Help With Health Decisions

Ancestry rolled out AncestryHealth, an initiative to provide actionable insights so that people can “take proactive steps—in collaboration with their healthcare provider—to address potential health risks identified in their genes and family health history.”

It is composed of two services at launch: AncestryHealth Core (“a one-time, array-based service” that “covers a set of curated, common ‘need to know’ health conditions and includes printable family health history and lab reports people can share with their healthcare provider”) and AncestryHealth Plus (“a membership service using next generation sequencing” tech to offer “more comprehensive screening data, providing both greater coverage of DNA differences for each condition and more risk categories”).

The services, available thanks to Ancestry’s partnership with PWNHealth, offer educational information, such as genetic counseling resources; reports detailing next steps that individuals and their healthcare providers can take; physician-ordered tests; and more.

For more information, read the press release.
