Population Health | Human Aging

Discover the impact of population genomics. Luminus Diagnostics’ genomics health systems can utilize population genomics to improve patient healthcare standards and better manage financial costs.

Our unique technology uses genetic testing to manage medications, reduce unnecessary side effects and increase health and wellness overall.

LARGE-SCALE GENOMIC RESEARCH

  • The latest state-of-the-art population research
  • Data analytic tools to offer the highest quality in genotype-phenotype research
  • Patient wellness program and medication risk management
  • Population health references and resources

KEY GOALS

  • Wellness Risk Management Program that lowers medical costs and decreases patient risk while increasing overall company health and well-being.
  • Genetic testing – one-time test to manage medications, reduce unnecessary side effects and increase health and wellness overall

Please note: The safety and effectiveness of some medications are directly correlated to the genetic makeup of the individual patient. However, not everyone is a good candidate for genetic testing.

ADVANCES IN GENOMICS IN HEALTHCARE

The impact of genomic information and technology has the potential to improve healthcare outcomes, quality, and safety, and result in numerous cost savings.

These outcomes are directly dependent on optimizing the use of information technology in the healthcare system. Individual genetic makeup and variation inform the risk of disease; can be used as a screening tool; more precisely characterize health conditions; improve medication selection, including therapies that may be designed to target the underlying disease genomics; and inform management of symptoms.


EXPAND KNOWLEDGE

To help share our knowledge and experience in population health management, Luminus Diagnostics offers education and training programs for fellow health care organization leaders. Explore how you can learn more from our team of population health experts.

PATIENT-CENTERED & DATA-DRIVEN

The Luminus Diagnostics Population Health team supports the design, development, and evaluation of patient-centered care delivery strategies and tools offered across the health care system. By leveraging innovative technologies and methods, our value-based care model supports the needs of the whole patient, no matter how complex.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE HEALTH POPULATION PROGRAM?

The Health Population Program is a patient wellness initiative and medication risk management analysis tool—improving patient wellness and decreasing overall healthcare costs.

  • The patient will learn the dangers associated with their medications
  • The patient is provided with health improvement actions to discuss with their healthcare provider
  • A genetic test is offered only to those that will benefit the most from the program

Differentiator: medication risk assessment program is completely hands off so that the patient is comfortable speaking to healthcare professionals about their medications.  IT takes into account the genetics and also lifestyle and medications of the patient.

Initial analysis provide a risk score so to rank the patients in order of who will benefit the most from the program – money spent wisely to reduce healthcare costs – and the ability for both the doctor and a pharmacist to adjust the medication the patient is taking— reduce risk and increase medication therapy success.

SAMPLE EVIDENCE BEHIND THE PROGRAM USE

Both research and practicing clinicians have shown dramatic improvement in health and wellness and a reduction in cost by rationalizing treatment plans using a medication therapy management program. Moreover, the use of appropriate genetic testing can provide additional measurable improvements.

  • Recent programs have shown a cost reduction of 30-70% in a 3-12 month time period, respectively
  • Short term cost, long term benefits – decrease out of pocket costs, costs to healthcare benefit systems, costs to overall healthcare
  • Decreased repeat office/hospital visits to 1) address adverse drug reactions, 2) alter medications due to lack of efficacy, 3) address severe outcomes stemming from inaccurately treated thrombotic issues (e.g. CV events, ischemic attaches, etc.).
  • Increased quality of life for patients and longevity of retirement benefits plans

SHOW ME THE DATA

Data from hospitals, providers, and patient claims underpin every activity in population health management at Luminus Diagnostics. From evaluating our clinical care redesign initiatives, to analyzing patient data, identifying trends, tracking quality outcomes, and publishing on lessons learned—almost all new ideas and innovations in Population Health Systems rely on our comprehensive analytics.
