Harness the power of precision health and clinical genetics to improve employee health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs

Download Overview

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.

Give your employees and their families a new way to engage with their health

It all starts with a clinical-grade, physician-ordered genetic test they can start at home. With strong consumer interest in genetic information and clinical value for people even when they’re healthy, we use genetics as a unique engagement tool that brings personal context to healthcare decisions.

Connect your population to your existing programs

Color is built to integrate with your benefits ecosystem. By collecting information on genetics, lifestyle choices, and health history, we can help refer employees to the appropriate programs and benefits that make the most sense for them.

Help employees turn knowledge into action with their doctors

Our insights are meant to help improve health outcomes and anticipate costly health events through the early detection and prevention of hereditary conditions, including cancer and heart disease. We also help employees understand how they might process certain medications.

* Do not change or stop taking any medicine based on a genetic test report without consulting your healthcare provider. 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.
