We operate with conviction that what is best for our customers (patients, their families and the clinicians, payers and partners who serve them) must be embedded in every aspect of our work. We believe:

  • genomic information has broad utility and every person should have access to their genome — delivered expertly, ethically and responsibly — to guide health decisions throughout life;
  • the transition from hypothesis-based to genome-guided healthcare will improve outcomes for patients and the healthcare system that benefit society as a whole;
  • genomics will radically transform therapeutic development, bringing better therapies to patients, faster; and
  • patients should control and have the ability to direct the use of their genomic information to benefit both themselves and advance scientific understanding that helps others.

In support of these beliefs, we value:

  • Equitability: the right of all to have access to information that can improve their health and are committed to closing gaps in health disparities;
  • Simplicity: Healthcare is complicated. Genetic information is complex. Our job is to make it as simple as possible to access an answer that improves health outcomes. We value the understanding simplicity creates;
  • Transparency: paramount to our success is transparency and accountability for ourselves and our partners to safeguard the confidence and trust of our patients, customers, partners and shareholders.

Through this value system we aim to revolutionize healthcare and change lives by unlocking the answers from within; bringing better health from genomics to patients around the world.
