We provide user friendly solutions that help identify high risk individuals before
disease occurs and then helps manage them to prevent or ameliorate disease.
The Massachusetts General Hospital and the Newton Wellesley Hospital initially developed
software to help identify and manage women at high risk for hereditary cancer. The
software is available as freeware.
This system allows the patient to input his or her own family history and risk data
using a Tablet or through a web interface; data may also be entered by a clinician
or staff member through a desktop PC. When the Tablet system is used, the patient’s
data is wirelessly transmitted to the server, where the clinician can view, edit
and print it.
The data is analyzed for breast and ovarian cancer risk, and a printout of risk
information is generated. Printouts include risk calculations, family history and
a graphical pedigree.
The software has been developed in a modular format, and, in addition to the Risk
Clinic module, we have also developed modules for:
- Breast Surgery
- Pre-Anesthesia Evaluation
- Prenatal evaluation (Genetic and environmental risk to the fetus)
- Plastic surgery photo management
- Rheumatology joint function/pain evaluation
