For providers looking to move towards precision medicine, introducing Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is a good place to start.

While we cover this in-depth throughout our webinar hosted by Center for Healthcare Solutions, we’ve bulleted out the quick hits – so you can start thinking about if PGx is a strategy you’d like to add to your prescribing toolkit.

More effective treatments

Pharmacogenetic testing helps you understand how different individuals metabolize drugs differently, providing insight into which medications will be most effective – allowing you to create more personalized treatment plans and get better outcomes for patients.

Reduced cost burden

Accurate pharmacogenetic testing makes it easier to avoid costly trial-and-error drug treatments, reducing medical costs for both patients and insurers.

Increased efficiency

With greater knowledge of how a patient’s body reacts to certain medications, providers can deliver tailored care faster, leading to improved quality of life for the patient.

Improved safety

With pharmacogenetic testing, you can identify which drugs may be too strong or ineffective for a patient – helping to avoid delays in the drug’s response, adverse reactions and other potentially dangerous side effects.

Greater accuracy

By testing for an individual’s genetic makeup, pharmacogenetic results help providers make highly personalized and data-driven treatment decisions based on a patient’s ability to metabolize a drug.  

Overall, implementing pharmacogenomics into your care delivery is essential for providing the most effective treatments possible while reducing overall costs and improving safety – leading to better outcomes for everyone involved.

For a closer look at the how, when, and why of genetic testing for precision prescribing, watch our recent webinar with Access Dx, Pharmacogenomics Across Care Settings, hosted by our friends at the Center for Healthcare Solutions.

In our recent webinar presented by Center for Healthcare Solutions, Jen Devinney, Chief Clinical Officer at Grane Rx is joined by Rick Shigaki, VP Pharmaceutical Solutions at Access Dx, where they provide a detailed overview of the applications for Pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing across a variety of care settings, examples of exactly how it can be applied, and case studies that contextualize its value in a variety of situations where patient care can be dramatically improved.
