An alarming number of people who leave the hospital are re-admitted after 30 days (AHRQ). Half of these re-admissions are caused by preventable medication problems. CareKinesis partners with accountable care organizations to help reduce recidivism. Specially-trained pharmacists provide medication management services for patients and physicians, and our unique system of medication packaging increases patient concordance and adherence.
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Initiatives
Evidence shows that a person’s genetic make-up will affect the way he/she responds to certain medications. Whereas most people will respond well (as expected) to most medications, genetic variance can prevent some people from receiving any benefit at all or cause them to experience negative medication effects. Pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing can identify whether an individual is able to benefit from certain medications. CareKinesis coordinates PGx testing, translates results, and confers therapy suggestions with the participant’s clinician.
