A major challenge to implementing precision medicine is the need for an efficient and cost-effective strategy for returning individual genomic test results that is easily scalable and can be incorporated into multiple models of clinical practice. My46 is a Web-based tool for managing the return of genetic results that was designed and developed to support a wide range of approaches to disclosing results, ranging from traditional face-to-face disclosure to self-guided models. My46 has five key functions: set and modify results-return preferences, return results, educate, manage the return of results, and assess the return of results. These key functions are supported by six distinct modules and a suite of features that enhance the user experience, ease site navigation, facilitate knowledge sharing, and enable results-return tracking. My46 is a potentially effective solution for returning results and supports current trends toward shared decision making between patients and providers and patient-driven health management.
