Innovative Ways Plan Sponsors Can Optimize Healthcare Spend Using Precision Medicine

Thursday, May 24th | 1:30 pm Eastern

Precision medicine, an emerging trend in pharmacy benefits, offers an opportunity for plan sponsors to meet the challenges of rising healthcare costs. The convergence of clinical and technological advances have enabled significant innovations in medicine.

Pharmacogenetics, a component of precision medicine, looks at metabolic traits that influence an individual’s ability to process medications. These traits can impact the risk and severity of medication side effects, as well as whether an individual is able to achieve a safe and effective therapeutic level of the medication. Pharmacogenetic data can help to reduce adverse drug reactions and improve healthcare outcomes.
