WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Feb. 21, 2017 – Patients living in remote areas who are concerned about their risk to develop cancer no longer have to drive to a large medical facility to get answers. Novant Health launched genetics video visits this month, thereby expanding access to potentially life-saving preventive care conversations. The technology will enable patients to connect with a genetic counselor using Novant Health’s MyChart application and a device with a webcam. Patients without a webcam living in and around Kernersville, Thomasville, Salisbury, Wilkesboro, Eden and Mount Airy can schedule their video visits at a designated Novant Health Oncology Specialists clinic in their community.
