About Prescient Medicine
About Prescient Medicine
The power to predict can strengthen the ability to heal and prevent disease. That’s why Prescient Medicine is dedicated to uncovering critical insights that enable more informed, more effective care. We see this as the next frontier in healthcare, and we’re passionate about bringing it to life today. The need is critical, the technology is ready, and the time is now.
Through our expertise in pharmacology, chemistry, pathology, pharmacogenomics, and toxicology, we’ve created powerful tests and analytics that deliver the right information necessary to make the correct choice at the appropriate time. Our genetic-based tests target patient outcomes and management in two key areas: medication interaction and medication efficacy. With actionable results in hand, physicians can better prescribe compatible therapies and also predict how a patient might react to potential treatment options.
And Prescient is just getting started. We’ve discovered that equipping doctors with deeper predictive intelligence opens the door to entirely new possibilities in personalized medicine. So we’re continuing to expand our industry-leading portfolio by building new procedures, kits, and online apps. We’re also partnering with device manufacturers and institutions to uncover new ways to harness the power of our advanced analytics.
It’s all in service of our belief that the next frontier in healthcare delivery has already arrived—and we’re honored to be among its pioneers.
