PRECISE MEDICINE

Ever since unlocking the human genome, scientists and researchers have been racing towards utilizing this technology to help benefit the human race.  One of the latest technologies providing better health outcomes for patients is Pharmacogenetics (PGX).

By combining pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of the genes and how they function within the body) we are able to understand an individuals response to medication.  

Not only taking the guess work out of how a patient will respond, but also identify precursors for certain addiction traits, providing a truly individualized medical solution, all while limiting your liability.

A smarter solution for everyone.

NO MORE TRIAL & ERROR

The U.S. spends nearly $270 Billion annually on prescription medications.  The idea behind pharmacogenetics and precise medicine is to eliminate the trial and error mentality.  By examining a patients DNA, we can now identify which medications are going to be of the greatest benefit and individualize the dosage.

Through intelligent testing we can now analyze the relationship between a patients unique DNA and their complex pharmacologic metabolic pathways.

NO MORE GUESS WORK - INDIVIDUAL ANALYSES - BETTER OUTCOMES

THE FUTURE ISNOW

IDENTIFY

Identifying your patients unique genetic code helps you better understand their needs and guide prescription patterns.

REDUCE

Reduce the risk of adverse drug side effects and minimize overdose events.  This is a significant step forward in health care today

CONNECT

Connect with patients on a new level and individualize effective therapies, increase efficiencies and greatly reduce liability.

TARGET

A truly targeted medication therapy.  Reduce human error in prescribing medication, minimizing drug interaction and genetic specific side effects.

KNOWING THE PROBLEM

In the U.S. there are over 2.2 million adverse drug events reported annually.  

  • 100 000 deaths

    Adverse drug events lead to 5-7% of all hospitalizations in the U.S. annually

  • 770 000 INJURIES

    The result is 770,000 injuries and over 100,000 deaths

  • $5.6 M PER HOSPITAL

    Adds up to $5.6 million dollars per hospital impacted

There is no common standard for education about diagnosis. Distinguishing between bipolar depression and major depressive disorder, for example, can be difficult, and mistakes are common. Misdiagnosis can be lethal. Medications that work well for some forms of depression induce agitation in others.

These guidelines are based on a patients individual genetic makeup and how medications metabolize within the  individual. This can help reduce a variety of side affects as these patients can have difficulty communicating how they are feeling and can not articulate side affects efficiently.
