Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

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. Along with our partner, Base10 Genetics, learn how we can help find the best solution for you!

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.

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.
