Implementing family health history risk stratification in primary care: Impact of guideline criteria on populations and resource demand

American Journal of Medical Genetics – The Genomic Medicine Model aims to facilitate patient engagement, patient/provider education of genomics/personalized medicine, and uptake of risk‐stratified evidence‐based prevention guidelines using MeTree, a patient‐facing family health history (FHH) collection and clinical decision support (CDS) program. Here we report the number of increased risk (above population‐level risk) patients identified for breast/ovarian cancer, colon cancer, hereditary syndrome risk, and thrombosis; the prevalence of FHH elements triggering increased‐risk status; and the resources needed to manage their risk.
