Talk to CLS’ Chief Science Officer, Jeffrey A. Shaman, PhD, MS, and Vice President of Marketing, Paul Chernin to discuss the Real-World Impact of a Pharmacogenomics-Enriched Comprehensive Medication Management Program
Many people are surprised to learn that DNA can affect whether hundreds of medications work (or not) for any given individual and if they are safe to take (or likely to cause potentially dangerous adverse drug events). That’s because natural variation in our genetic code can cause the same drug to produce different effects on different people. Both employers and employees bear the burden of trial-and-error prescribing, which includes wasted resources, time, and poor health.
Coriell Life Sciences’ Corigen® Medication Safety Program uses a simple DNA test to provide participants and their doctors clinically relevant insight on which medications are likely to be ineffective or unsafe — as well as those that are safest and most effective — for them based on their DNA and dozens of other important factors. Corigen is the most comprehensive medication safety solution on the market.
The results include:
- Safer, more effective treatment plans
- Measurable improvements in employee health
- Significant economic savings (See case study on how one of our clients reduced direct medical charges by $37+ million in 32 months)
With the input of the sponsoring organization, CLS handles everything from population analytics to member engagement and enrollment, test results delivery, and detailed reporting.
