Tell us about Mendelian.

At Mendelian, rare diseases are our priority. We are accelerating diagnosis time, limiting misdiagnosis and improving the clinical pathway to ensure patients are directed to the right specialist the first time. We understand that the diagnosis is often complex, challenging and costly due to patients showing a cluster of symptom, therefore, at Mendelian, we have been actively designing solutions to overcome this challenge and to help support GPs in identifying patients with rare diseases, earlier. Our technology helps to shortens patients’ diagnostic journey, improving coordination across specialists and redesigned care pathways.
