Session Title: Personalized Medicine is Changing Lives Every Day

Millions of Americans take antidepressant medications but they only work for 1 out of every 8 that take them. Personalized medicine, specifically Combinatorial Pharmacogenetics (GeneSight) from Assurex Health is helping thousands of people reclaim their lives every day. GeneSight is a genetic test that helps healthcare providers take a personalized approach to prescribing medicine for patients. Because genes influence the way a person’s body responds to specific medications, the medications may not work the same for everyone. Using DNA gathered with a simple cheek swab, GeneSight analyzes a patient’s genes and provides individualized information to help healthcare providers select medications that better match their patient’s genes. Assurex has grown from "4 people in a garage" to over 300 employees servicing over 100,000 patients per year in just a few short years.
