we have the solutions
Precision medicine allows for more accurate disease treatment and prevention strategy, reducing morbidity, mortality, and healthcare-associated costs. Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is a subset of the field of precision medicine that examines the genes of an individual and provides knowledge about one’s responses to medications, enabling the medical provider to be more precise when prescribing medications and managing doses for optimal efficacy and safety.
Partnering with base10 genetics
The future of healthcare starts with precision medication management
Every nursing home resident is unique. Base10 can help you optimize the efficacy and safety of drug therapy by centering care around your patients’ genetic makeup. Confidently prescribe medications and find ideal dosages using BASE10’s individualized insights.
Provide personalized, precise treatment across a variety of medical specialties.
Increase the probability of positive medication response and develop prevention strategies
Reduce medication spend and minimize healthcare associated costs
Older patients are more at-risk for drug interactions
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that over 350,000 adverse drug events occur in U.S. nursing homes every year. Pharmacogenetics can help patients receive the full intended benefit of a prescribed medication and prevent adverse drug events.
However, pharmacogenetic testing and application, while highly beneficial, is not easily accessible.
- Clinician training on the science and clinical application of Precision Medication Management is not readily available
- Providers don’t know who is eligible for pharmacogenetic testing or who should receive a test
- Insurance coverage and prior authorization process can be a headache for prescribers
The cost of preventable adverse drug events
Adverse drug events are estimated to cost up to $30 billion in the U.S. annually due to increased hospitalizations, prolonged hospital stays, additional diagnostic tests, and therapeutic measures.
Using BASE10’s Precision Medication Management program, nursing homes can ensure that drug therapy is as safe and effective as possible.

The Precision Medication Management report includes:
Proven and tested
Pharmacogenetics is a proven clinical application of precision medicine. This FDA-recognized field examines the genes of an individual to provide insights into their medication responses.
The American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and American Psychiatry Association have all begun to implement Precision Medication Management-based medication dosing regimens into their published practice guidelines.
