Hottest Health Strategies to Tackle Your Highest Costs: Pharmacogenomics

Hottest Health Strategies to Tackle Your Highest Costs: Pharmacogenomics

Employers and brokers must understand that medication trial and error is not a sustainable solution as it increases plan claim volume and patient non-compliance. A robust pharmacogenomics program utilizes gene-based science to guarantee the most effective drug therapy right from the start. 

Join the True Conversations webinar to learn about the benefits of pharmacogenomics, which include: 

  • The process to ensure patients receive the most suitable medication right from the start 
  • Decreasing the number of claims for various types of drugs, such as antidepressants, statins, ADHD medications, acid-reflux therapies, and more 
  • Reducing overall healthcare expenses for both employers and employees
