Sanford Health Launches System-Wide, EHR-Integrated Pharmacogenetics Service Using Syapse Platform
Jun 4 15
Sanford Health announced the first enterprise-wide availability of real-time drug dosing and order modification alerts tailored to a patient’s genetic profile within a commercial EHR system. The company has automated pharmacogenetic clinical decision support and the internal test process using Syapse Precision Medicine Platform. To provide these services, Sanford Health’s clinical molecular genetics laboratory analyses a custom panel of genes involved in drug metabolism. The Syapse platform delivers clinically actionable drug metabolizer status information to the EHR, where real-time alerts suggest dosage changes or alternative drugs, as appropriate. The company’s integrated health plan will pay for the service, subject to deductibles and copays, which combines genetic testing and EHR-based therapeutic decision support to help clinicians safely prescribe and dose common drugs, including statins, blood thinners, anti-cancer drugs and painkillers. Pharmacogenetic testing is available for all Sanford patients and can be ordered by any Sanford physician, including primary care providers.
