As we age …. Your DNA determines how you respond to different medications. Testing for this genetic information gives physicians the tools they need to predict whether a specific drug will help you as a patient. All it takes is a painless cheek swab sample test. We analyze your DNA and send a comprehensive report to your doctor who can then prescribe the absolute best medicines for your body, fine tune the dosage for your individual metabolic pathways, and prevent harmful drug interactions. This cutting-edge process is called pharmacogenomics, an important aspect of a new revolution in healthcare … Personalized Medicine.
Personalized Medicine – A Gamechanger
Personalized medicine is essentially an extension of traditional approaches to healthcare, but offers much greater precision. Providers may now use a patient’s unique genetic profile to guide the selection of medications and related treatments, and in many cases avoid adverse drug reactions. This added precision offers a more preventive and cost-effective approach to patient care. Most health insurance policies cover DNA tests when ordered by a doctor, yet only 1 out of 10 physicians feel adequately informed about these types of genomic tests. Our Smart*Decision DNA Solution resolves this problem with an Informative Test Kit which you give to your physician at your next appointment. After a brief review, your doctor fills out a form and collects the sample which is sent to our laboratory. Qualified technicians then analyze your DNA and deliver the results in a physician-friendly format to your doctor who will then use your personal genomic information to improve your health.
Aging Population – Mom & Dad
Reimbursement for the cost of DNA testing for at-risk patients is excellent. Medicare and Insurance will usually pay for DNA testing if the patient is on multiple medications, or has had a documented drug reaction, or if a drug fails to work.
