The Power of Personalized Medicine
Personalized medicine is fast becoming an integral part of patient care, changing the healthcare landscape. DNA Direct’s Genomic Medicine Network, comprised of hospitals and organizations throughout North America, offers physicians and their patients a seamless way to embrace the power of personalized medicine, to make more informed health decisions and to improve patient outcomes. It helps physicians and hospital staff navigate the complexities of genetic tests through access to the tools and support they need to choose the right test, at the right time, for the right patient.
The Genomic Medicine Network
The DNA Direct Genomic Medicine Network (GMN) enables cost-effective integration of genomic medicine into clinical care by offering hospitals and medical centers:
- A co-branded decision support web portal for patients and physicians that provides information and interactive tools including a family medical history tool and BRCA decision support tool
- Access to genetic experts in all major specialties who provide pre- and post-test decision support. These experts help determine test appropriateness and provide clear and actionable interpretation of results.
- Collaboration among physicians nationwide to share best practices, clinical experiences and expertise
- Continuing education and training
Personalized medicine and genetic services are essential components of progressive, forward-thinking institutions. These services provide hospitals with an opportunity to differentiate themselves in the market as part of their effort to drive downstream revenue. As forward thinkers focused on innovation, GMN members can leverage personalized medicine and take their place as leaders in genomics.
