HUMMELSTOWN, Pa., Jan 25, 2017 -- Patients who suffer from chronic pain may now benefit from a new partnership between Prescient Medicine of Hummelstown, Pa. and Advanced PainCare of Mechanicsburg, Pa. The organizations today announced that they have partnered to provide Advanced PainCare patients with improved laboratory testing services that will reduce wait time for urine tests and assist physicians with making timely, informed treatment decisions to help patients reduce or eliminate chronic pain and return to leading active, normal lives. According to a report by the Institute of Medicine, more than 100 million U.S. adults suffer from chronic, debilitating pain.i Many patients treated for chronic pain require routine medical testing to ensure proper therapeutic results are being obtained.

The organizations further announced that they will offer cutting edge genetic laboratory testing that can provide compelling insight into how a patient might metabolize a medication based on the patient’s unique DNA profile. Genetic testing for patients taking pain medicine can potentially reduce overdose and addiction risk, as well as help physicians select medications that will reduce pain more effectively.

“Precision medicine is a new category of medicine that provides patients and physicians with insights that have never been available before. We are providing precision medicine services that help physicians make informed decisions about many medical conditions, including the treatment of chronic pain,” said Keri Donaldson, M.D., CEO, Prescient Medicine.

“Offering these services in our home state and with Advanced PainCare is particularly gratifying because of the high quality of care that Advanced PainCare provides,” Donaldson said.

“We’re thrilled that Prescient Medicine is sending their precision medicine reports back to us in such a timely fashion. We have more information than ever before and we’re getting that information more quickly. When our patients can get back to their lives sooner, and with better outcomes, we know we’re helping them,” said Jean Louise Santo, M.D., Advanced PainCare Founder.
