To the Editor In an Original Investigation published in a recent issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, Biesecker et al1 conducted a randomized trial testing whether web-based platform was noninferior to genetic counselors in educating patients about carrier results from exome sequencing. No significant difference between genetic counselors and web-based platforms was detected. The authors concluded that a web-based approach might be an acceptable, cost-effective alternative to genetic counselors.
