PERSONALIZED MEDICINE

Personalized Medicine – Tomorrow’s Hope is Here Today



Every person, regardless of ethnicity, size or gender has a genetic makeup that is uniquely their own. This exciting, established field has empowered every medical professional and patient with the specific knowledge to properly, prescribe a patient’s symptoms and conditions with accurate medication in specific dosages for optimized results.

With advances in medicine and AffiniCorp’s commitment to staying ahead of the medical curve, personalized medicine has become less of a dream, and more of a reality. Personalized medicine shifts the pendulum from reactionary to preventative. Physicians, ACO’s, & hospital systems can move closer to improved patient results while lowering long term costs by reducing trial and error and potential for abuse.

Healthcare Landscape



100 Million Americans suffer from Chronic Pain each year, According to Institute of the National Academies.

  • Accurately testing and managing your patients on pain medications, via toxicology, is required each month
  • 50% of all patients have genetic variances that could effect the way they metabolize medications, therefor altering a prescribed medications intended effect.
Diabetes expenditure each year accounts for more than 1 in 5 health care dollars in the U.S., with more than half of that expenditure directly attributable to diabetes.

  • 18% of that spending is attributable to prescription medications to treat complications of diabetes
  • Another 12% is for anti-diabetic agents and diabetic supplies
  • 50% of all patients have genetic variances that could effect the way they metabolize medications, therefor altering a prescribed medications intended effect.

About 610,000 people die of heart disease every year in the U.S. That’s 1 in every 4 deaths! Coronary heart disease is the most common type. Among healthier diet, exercise, and to quit smoking, the CDC lists following your doctors orders for the proper medication.

  • 50% of all patients have genetic variances that could effect the way they metabolize medications, therefor altering a prescribed medications intended effect.
If a patient has multiple chronic conditions, i.e. diabetes, overweight, cancer, the proper medications becomes of even more concern.

The Agency for Healthcare research and Quality (AHRQ) estimates that the direct medical costs for cancer in the US is approximately $88.7 billion.

  • 11.7% of this cost is for prescription drugs.
  • Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • 50% of all patients have genetic variances that could effect the way they metabolize medications, therefor altering a prescribed medications intended effect.

Definition of Personalized Medicine



The definition and scope of the term personalized medicine varies widely, ranging from the extremely broad to the very narrow. These examples have been selected to demonstrate the range of definitions that have been proposed:

  • “The use of new methods of molecular analysis to better manage a patient’s disease or predisposition to disease.” – Personalized Medicine Coalition
  • “Providing the right treatment to the right patient, at the right dose at the right time.” – European Union
  • “The tailoring of medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient.” – President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
  • “Health care that is informed by each person’s unique clinical, genetic, and environmental information.” – American Medical Association
  • “A form of medicine that uses information about a person’s genes, proteins, and environment to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.”  National Cancer Institute, NIH

Customized Solutions



Physicians battle daily with complex disease states, countless protocols, and a constant under current pushing them to drive down costs. The current health care arena demands an eye focused clearly on accurate diagnosis while promoting cost savings and long term wellness.

The medical environment is at a precipice, swiftly moving towards an era of having more information available to them, than ever before.  Physicians now have the ability to prescribe the most accurate medications, or in specific situations, customized medications.
