Telemedicine approaches are relevant to genetic services. Current developments in genetic services allow the fast accumulation of massive genetic data bases, most of which grant free access to both medical specialists and private individuals. Figuratively, we are talking about an ocean of genetic data which has the potential to transform modern medicine into a more precise and personalized field. Personalized medicine in the age of genomics and epigenomics literally means that we are living in a time when anyone can very easily obtain information about his own genetics, about a predisposition to a certain deadly disease, or about the presence of mutations which could potentially be transferred to one's offspring. Genetic screening produces massive amounts of data, which increases every day. Patients and medical specialists face serious challenges in dealing with this. Special genetic services and counseling is not easy to find, especially in rural and distant places which are sometimes referred to as “genetic deserts.” These locations may reach out for solutions to fill the gap between modern health care services and the proper understanding of, and use of, genetic data. Genetic counselling via the internet and mobile devices already occasionally takes place, but is not regulated. The topic needs attention by specialists, politicians, and decision makers in the field of healthcare and medicine. Videoconferencing for genetic consultation is becoming a logical extension of what people already do with their webcams and smartphones. Telemedicine is a good solution as it saves patients' time, the cost and burden of transportation and, oftentimes, the need to find day care or take time off from work. This opens a new field of providing genetic counselling using videoconferencing and other and other forms of media, allowing specialists and patients to benefit from genetic data.
