“We are excited to be joining Epic’s App Orchard marketplace, making it easier for health systems to find and integrate the ActX Genomic Service” - Andrew Ury, M.D., ActX CEO
SEATTLE (PRWEB) February 19, 2020
ActX, an industry leader in precision medicine, has joined the Epic App Orchard marketplace. The addition of the ActX Genomic Service provides Epic customers with an option to access genomics in everyday patient care using a sophisticated decision support platform.
ActX delivers clinically actionable insights that facilitate personalized prescribing and actionable risk management based on the patient’s unique genetic profile, all within the provider’s workflow. Medication orders are checked in the background against the patient’s genetics, and the physician is alerted if a medication is likely to be ineffective, cause side effects, or need a dosing adjustment. Directly in the patient chart, providers will have access to their patients’ genomic profiles, offering insight into drug genomic interactions, hereditary risks, and carrier status. Having an integrated patient genomic profile enables providers to proactively tailor care plans to the individual.
“We are excited to be joining Epic’s App Orchard marketplace, making it easier for health systems to find and integrate the ActX Genomic Service,” said Andrew Ury, M.D., ActX CEO. “ActX allows patients to benefit from genomics by getting the right medication the first time, and to receive pro-active care to avoid actionable risks, all built into the provider’s workflow.”
More than 20,000 providers are helping their patients receive better care through ActX. Our goal is to make genomics practical. By listing our app in the App Orchard marketplace, ActX has moved one step closer to making precision medicine based care available everywhere.
ActX is the industry leader in EHR-integrated precision medicine. Our service helps physicians make better decisions about medical treatment, using a patient’s genetic information to guide therapy. The ActX Genomic Service offers proven, tightly integrated, real-time genomic decision support for medication orders and actionable genomic risks, a built in patient Genomic Profile, and the ability to fully customize content.
As medications are ordered, and before the prescription is finalized, medications are checked against the patient’s genetics for efficacy, adverse reactions, and dosing. Extensive evidence based and actionable content is provided as default, customizable content, covering hundreds of genes. You can easily suppress any content or interactions, or add or modify content.
The ActX Genomic Service is live at numerous Epic customers, with the first live Epic use in 2016. To take the next step toward precision medicine, visit http://www.actx.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-998-2289.
