Health is personal. Your benefits should be, too.
Color is designed to make it easy for employees to have a better understanding of their health and create an action plan with their doctor to stay healthy. We use genetics as a foundation to help identify overall health risks within your company and connect employees to the support that is right for them.

Employee Education & Engagement
Color educates employees about the benefits of the program. We then tailor engagement programs to the needs of your workforce, helping with driving awareness, program education, consent, account activation, delivering test results, scheduling counseling sessions, and ongoing access to health resources and information. Our web platform also provides custom program-specific landing pages to make Color accessible to all of your employees.
Genetic Testing & Counseling
Color offers one of the most accessible, clinical-grade genetic testing services available today, analyzing genes associated with hereditary risk information around cancer and heart disease, and genes that can impact medication response. Our advanced lab is CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified, applying technologies to help ensure the integrity of the results we provide.
As part of every Color program, genetic counseling consultations are available to all participants on an ongoing basis. Our team of board-certified genetic counselors provide a concierge-like experience – we answer questions, provide education, and offer support to employees and their families.
We can also consult directly with your employees’ physicians and care teams to help ensure that results lead to actionable and relevant next steps.
Personalized Care Activation
Color can help drive a higher return on investment on your existing benefit programs. We use a more complete view of employee health risk, incorporating an individual’s genetics, personal and family health history, and lifestyle and behavior information to surface and educate on specific care or point solutions that employees can take advantage of based on their potential risks.
This can include anything from reminders about flu shots and annual wellness visits to getting breast and colon cancer screenings, as well as tools to help manage multiple chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Turn Data into Meaningful Insights
Individuals can work with their healthcare team to develop personalized prevention plans that take into account their genetic results, health history, and other personal risk factors.
Analysis of genes associated with hereditary cancer risk for breast, ovarian, uterine, colon, melanoma, pancreatic, stomach, and prostate cancers.
Analysis of genes associated with hereditary forms of heart disease, such as inherited high cholesterol, that may be evaluated differently from conditions without a genetic cause.
Analysis of genes associated with medication response that impact how the body may process certain medications.
Gaps in Care & Health Management
Personalized screening guidelines and identification of individuals who are overdue for screening and preventive care, including those with elevated risk.
Chronic Condition Management
Identification of people who could benefit from disease management, based on a combination of clinical, genetic, and behavioral risk factors.
Emerging & High Risks
Identifying people with high risk for major conditions based on genetic and non-genetic results. May include those who have inherited risk or are pre-diabetic.
Advanced Risk Stratification to Manage High-Cost Events
An employer can review anonymized, aggregated results that surface the overall risk areas and needs of its workforce. This helps organizations understand the risk of catastrophic, high-cost events and informs investment decisions in future programs.
One of the biggest challenges is encouraging specific employees to participate in relevant benefit programs that can help them manage and improve their health. Color provides a unique opportunity to help individuals that have a variety of risk factors, both genetic and non-genetic, and activate them into the relevant care programs through our engagement platform. Through our confidential, HIPAA-compliant process, Color raises awareness about relevant programs to specific individuals without compromising employee privacy.
Results for individual employees are completely confidential and never shared with employers.

This test is not intended to inform you about your current state of health, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much you should take. This test does not diagnose any health conditions and is not a substitute for visiting your health care provider. Discuss the results of the genetic test with your healthcare provider, including whether the medication label includes information on how to use genetic information to determine dosage. Medicine should always be taken as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
** Risk information and screening guidelines in results are typically based on studies of individuals with a family history of the disorder being discussed. Medical management should be considered also taking into account on your personal and family history.
