Powering the World's Pedigree Data
Progeny was established in 1996 and presented the first version of the software at the ASHG (American Society for Human Genetics) Conference. The premise of the application was originally conceptualized by a local oncologist involved in a collaborative study who needed the following:
- Pedigrees and data to be intimately linked together and updated simultaneously;
- Pedigrees to be easy to construct and easily modified;
- A fully functional database allowing for the end-user to customize it for any hereditary study, without requiring database programming skills.
- Ability for multiple users to access pedigrees and data for collaboration.
These needs resulted in what is still today the most comprehensive genetic pedigree and clinical data management software available anywhere.
Since Progeny was introduced in 1996:
- Progeny now counts over 1600 customers in 80 countries, including most of the top healthcare and research institutions in the world
- Progeny was acquired by Ambry Genetics on April 1, 2015, combining the premier clinical genetics laboratory with our pedigree and clinical data management expertise.
- Progeny provides an end-to-end solution from patient screening (using our online family history questionnaire or high risk triage questionnaire) to risk analysis, genetic test order processing, clinical review and patient letter generation.
- Unparalleled dedication to the genetic counseling community
Progeny provides advanced professional services and training to guide you in every step of your implementation and to optimize your system to your specific environment.
Our mission is to provide software to the genetic healthcare community to gather patient family history data and make this data portable through an integrated network of healthcare providers.
