“This is just the talent YouScript needed on the team to bring precision medicine to the point of care at the top medical centers in the country,” said Kristine Ashcraft, CEO of YouScript. “With almost 20 years’ experience in software implementation and integration with top national players, Mike is poised to make a direct impact on our business and on healthcare improvement, offering insight, expertise, and providing clients with excellent service.”

YouScript is the leader in gene-based precision prescribing. In a study published in the Journal of Medical Economics, the University of Utah showed that the use of pharmacogenetic testing and YouScript’s clinical decision support software reduced hospitalizations by 39-percent and ER visits by 71-percent in elderly patients taking multiple medications in just 4-months. A pending publication of a randomized controlled trial in home health patients shows dramatic reductions in re-hospitalizations, ER visits, and mortality. Mike Issac stated, “This is one of the few solutions I have seen that meets the goals of the Triple Aim. I am excited to be on the team bringing this transformational technology to market.”
