Latest Genetic Panel Offers Actionable Insights to Improve Patient Health


KING OF PRUSSIA, PA —Genomind® this week announced it is expanding its genetic panel and introducing a new streamlined report with actionable insights for patients – the Express Report. The enhanced genetic panel aligns with PGx testing guidelines and published evidence that affect hundreds of commonly prescribed medications. This includes drugs used in mental health, primary care, cardiology, pain management, and geriatrics. Genomind’s Express Report quickly and simply summarizes PGx risks and presents alternatives more likely to be well-tolerated for patients based on their detected gene-drug interactions.

“Historically, we have been the best in the industry for mental health medication management. This expansion allows us to better serve patients with comorbidities” says Chief Medical Officer, David Krause, MD, FACP. “Genomind provides a unique, in-depth report tailored to the patient’s current prescriptions, while offering one-on-one provider consultations with our expert team of PharmDs to provide guidance on interpreting insights from the genetic report”.

Supporting efficiencies and patient care for clinicians, Genomind provides proprietary interactive software, GenMedPro™, with improved PGx interaction guidance on more than 99% of the most commonly prescribed medications. GenMedPro helps providers proactively manage medications, optimize treatment plans and detect potential adverse drug events. Providers ordering PGx tests from Genomind have access to GenMedPro as part of the precision medicine guidance. Genomind’s PGx test and GenMedPro were designed to work in partnership to help healthcare providers evaluate safer prescribing options more effectively, safely and quickly – a critical advancement in reducing trial-and-error prescribing scenarios.

In the US each year, providers write nearly five billion prescriptions for over 20,000 FDA-approved drugs, often relying on a “trial and error” approach to manage a patient’s medications. This traditional prescribing method causes millions of patients to suffer preventable health complications and adverse drug events and increases resource utilization. Genetics is changing the game of medication management. By understanding how genes affect a person’s response to medications, healthcare providers can tailor treatment to each individual, improving outcomes and reducing the risk of side effects. Genomind’s PGx test is a powerful tool for improving the health of patients.

“I think at this point I have probably done about a thousand patient’s genetic tests with Genomind. There has been a 100% patient satisfaction. It’s changed how patients can be a part of their treatment, which is integral. I need to do everything in my power to get that patient invested and give them some hope. Not only does it give them hope that they are going to get the treatment right, but it also validates their experience.”
