Objectives

The objective of this project is to use pharmacogenomic testing to guide therapy , optimize medication use and identify and resolve drug therapy problems in patients with chronic pain or psychiatric conditions. Pharmacy will partner with provider teams to identify candidates for testing based on clinical picture including polypharmacy, frequent hospitalizations or clinic visits due to adverse drug reactions, or multiple failed therapies for pain or psychiatric conditions. Pharmacists will administer the test, interpret the results, and act upon them to identify and resolve drug therapy problems. The goals of this project are to decrease provider workload, optimize medication use, reduce healthcare expenditures, and gain a better understanding of the role that pharmacogenomic testing has in patient care.
