Population Health | Employee Wellness

Discover the impact of population genomics. Luminus Diagnostics’ genomics health systems can utilize population genomics to improve employee 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
  • Employee 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.


FINANCIAL COSTS

The cost of healthcare grew 6.3% in 2015 mainly due to cost of prescription healthcare.  HR Benefits managers are tasked with finding ways to decrease costs or educate employees towards better health.

LACK OF PRODUCTIVITY

Employees are missing work to manage issues relating to medication management and health conditions, as well as direct family prescription needs. The health of employees and family members they take care of can result in absence from work making companies less productive, resulting in a decrease in obtaining company goals.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE HEALTH POPULATION PROGRAM?

The Health Population Program is a employee health and wellness initiative and medication risk management analysis tool—improving employee wellness and productivity, while decreasing overall healthcare costs.

  • The employee will learn the dangers associated with their medications
  • The employee 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 employee is comfortable speaking to healthcare professionals about their medications.  IT takes into account the genetics and also lifestyle and medications of the employee.

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.
