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 throughout the nation, 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 testing 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 web-enabled portal that informs and guides patients and physicians about a variety of genetic testing areas
- 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 between physicians nationwide to share best practices, clinical experiences and expertise
- Continuing education and training
The GMN provides information and interactive decision support tools for over 50 genetic testing areas, representing specialties such as reproductive planning, oncology, infectious disease, drug response, and others.
Personalized medicine and genetic services are essential components of progressive, forward-thinking institutions. The services provide hospitals with an opportunity to differentiate their themselves in the market and drive downstream revenue.
