Solution
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
- ONLY 10% of PCPs are comfortable with PGx: further education and automation needed to enable PGx growth.
- ALL individuals carry actionable variants: 9 of 10 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 need multigene PGx.
- 37M Americans take antidepressants, with 50% of diagnosed patients NOT RESPONDING to 1st medication.
- PGx tested patients with Major Depressive Disorders were 71% MORE LIKELY to recover on their medication regimen.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
The way your body responds to medications depends on many factors, including your DNA. For example, if you have never taken a medication for anxiety or depression, you and your doctor can use the results of the Invenio's Medication Analysis test to assist in determining which medication to start first. Or, if a medication did not work well for you in the past or you experienced side effects, your doctor may consider your DNA results along with other health factors to adjust the dose or choose a different medication that’s better suited for you.
Level of adoption (i.e. list of customers/users, testimonials, etc.), if applicable
Invenio's Medication Analysis is currently utilized within 2 large Midwest IDNs.
