YouScript CEO Kristine Ashcraft attended the Long Term Post Acute Care & HIT Summit this week in Baltimore, MD to present a talk on the implications of pharmacogenetic testing, polypharmacy, and its impact on the elderly.
The presentation Kristine gave was titled “Integration and Outcomes: Shifting Precision Medicine from the Future to Now”
Many in healthcare today consider precision medicine and pharmacogenomics something that will be of benefit in the future, especially outside of oncology. Healthcare systems are juggling multiple implementations and making major process changes to address the shift to value-based care. All this with a careful eye on the associated and constantly evolving regulatory and quality initiatives. The only way to rise above the noise is to provide proven clinical and financial benefits AND answer the key questions – who do we test and how do we act on it – within the clinical workflow. See new research that puts pharmacogenetics on the priority list in a value-based world, and learn how cumulative and gene-based interaction risk is being identified and managed in the EHR.
