Several studies have shown that the chances of having a clinically useful genetic result increases with the quality of the clinical information provided.

This webinar will review how Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) terms allows the genetic and medical community to provide patients’ clinical information in a high quality format and their importance in increasing diagnostic yield.

We will also demonstrate how to use CentoPortal® to easily convert all relevant clinical information into HPO terms while submitting a test order. 

Webinar content:

  • Human phenotype ontology terms (HPO) and their importance in documenting patients’ symptoms
  • The importance of structured clinical information in increasing diagnostic yield of genetic testing
  • Using CentoPortal® to easily convert your patient’s clinical information into structured HPO
