Did you know that, nationally, when the wrong medications are prescribed, the resultant adverse drug reactions result in 128,000 deaths, more than 2 million hospitalizations, 28 percent of all emergency department visits, and account for 20.4 percent of hospital readmissions each year? In addition, when drugs don’t work, it means that patients are at risk for persistent conditions, deteriorating health, and expensive healthcare events.
To learn more about how new DNA testing technologies and personalized mediation therapy analysis can help reduce the overall cost of healthcare for public employee health plans, as well as improve health outcomes for retirees and the active working population, be sure to join Leigh Snell, NCTR’s Director of Federal Relations, for a fascinating review of personalized medicine and its impact on healthcare.
Leigh will be joined by an expert from Coriell Life Sciences, the commercial venture of the world-renowned Coriell Institute for Medical Research, a non-profit biomedical research institution, founded in 1953 and dedicated to studying the human genome; as well as a representative from an NCTR member system who is reducing costs and improving patient wellness using personalized medicine.
