Genelex Corporation Key Developments

United States Department of Veterans Affairs Awards Federal Supply Schedule Contract to Genelex

Genelex announced the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS V797D-50565) contract as a government supplier, which will take effect March 15, 2016. The contract makes pharmacogenetic testing accessible to clinicians in the Veteran’s Administration so their patients can immediately benefit from precision medicine. The YouScript Precision Prescribing System, developed by Genelex, helps eliminate adverse drug events caused by the cumulative impact of multiple medications and genetic variations missed by current drug interaction systems. Genelex uses a simple cheek swab to detect these variations, and then staff pharmacists provide personalized prescribing suggestions using the YouScript software which includes over 14,000 curated references on drug and gene interactions and how medications are metabolized in a patient’s body. The results not only reveal drug-gene interactions, but interactions between genes and multiple drugs to help providers find the best treatment for patients. After testing, providers can access YouScript in a secure, web-based portal to 'audition' new drugs in a clinical decision support tool rather than in a patient’s body. The software is also able to integrate directly into EHRs and other healthcare software systems. The approval will also allow healthcare providers in the Department of Defense, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons to have access to this technology to reduce healthcare costs and improve patient care.

Genelex Announces Integration with Epic

Genelex announced enhanced connection with Epic. This new connectivity enables Genelex customers using Epic to better identify patients who are at the highest risk of adverse drug events based on drug-gene and drug-drug gene interactions which has been proven to significantly lower ED visits and hospitalizations. YouScript helps customers identify which patients are at the highest risk of adverse drug events, which ones would benefit from pharmacogenomic testing and what clinicians can do to optimize the safety and effectiveness of medications. Based on over 14,000 curated references and product inserts, YouScript determines the cumulative impact of genetics, medications, over-the-counters, herbals, and other factors offering ranked alternatives when interaction risk is found.
