HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 20, 2024 – healthŌme®, Inc., a leading genomics-based, precision health management company serving the life and critical illness industries, and GalenusRx, Inc., the world’s most advanced medication safety organization, today announced a strategic partnership to elevate individual health outcomes, optimize medication use and improve medication safety. The partnership marks a critical advancement for healthŌme policyholders to access life-changing personalized medicine and proactive health management.

Adverse drug events are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and are a public health problem that is largely preventable. The partnership embodies a shared vision to improve health and medication safety by integrating GalenusRx’s extensive precision clinical pharmacy expertise and proprietary medication safety technology with healthŌme’s experience in genomics and innovative precision health and disease management programs. The program offers immediate benefits for healthŌme policyholders taking all types of medications to help understand how their body responds to their medication regimen.

In addition, GalenusRx is the first solution to consider how low-grade chronic inflammation affects drug metabolism. This benefits policyholders with Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune diseases. Leveraging healthŌme’s pharmacogenomic testing (PGx) and engaging digital policyholder platform, a program has been curated to reduce preventable adverse drug events, including falls, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, morbidity and premature mortality, by applying the latest in drug metabolism sciences.

“Our partnership with GalenusRx is an important milestone not just for healthŌme but also in precision healthcare. Together, we empower individuals with insights to navigate their health journey confidently, providing knowledge to inform healthcare decisions based on the individual’s DNA,” said Darren Rowe, CEO of healthŌme. “We are excited to team up with GalenusRx and see this as a monumental leap towards a future of predictive, personalized medication selection that reduces morbidity and mortality.”

“We are very pleased to have partnered with healthŌme to support the pharmacotherapy navigation for their cancer management program. Our collective partnership provides important tools for policyholders to manage their health proactively and support them during their cancer journey,” said Peter Panageas, Chief Commercial Officer of GalenusRx. “We are redefining the role of pharmacists and their tremendous value to patient care teams.”

healthŌme designs and delivers tech-enabled, genomics-driven health management programs across various therapeutic indications, the first program being cancerŌme®. This cancer management program provides policyholders with PGx testing and hereditary cancer risk screening services. GalenusRx integrates data from the individual’s PGx report to give personalized recommendations to manage their medication plan proactively. Policyholders receive on-demand consultations with a Precision Clinical Pharmacist, who communicates any recommended medication adjustments to the prescribing physician. The iterative process ensures that medications are continuously optimized. Additionally, for policyholders diagnosed with cancer, cancerŌme provides a comprehensive, end-to-end solution from diagnosis into recovery that incorporates additional genomic testing, Oncology Nurse Navigation, and medication management support.

GalenusRx is a leading medication safety solutions provider specializing in personalized, precision medication regimens. With GalenusRx’s decades of clinical experience and deep science-based proprietary advanced technology, the APPRAISETM solution (Actionable PolyPharmacy Risk Index for Safety and Equity) is leveraged to improve patient outcomes through medication safety insights delivered by Precision Clinical Pharmacists.

Together, healthŌme and GalenusRx refine the standards of medication management, merging personalized medication plan safety with genomics-driven insights for a comprehensive and engaging policyholder experience.
