Good candidates for the ActX Service include, but are not limited to:
If you use ActX inside an integrated Electronic Health Record, you will be notified of your patient’s results availability within your EHR. If you use the ActX website, you will be notified that a patient’s results are available via email. As an authorizing physician, you will receive your notification five days before your patient does.
Patients are notified that their results are available via email. They can then sign into their account on ActX.com to view their results. As their authorizing physician, you will receive your results notification five days before your patient does.
All data is encrypted end to end, with sophisticated authentication and audit procedures. Patient privacy is a primary goal, and the technology is designed to be HIPAA compliant.
Most patients have between three and five medication alerts. About 87% of patients have at least one medication related alert. Currently, about 3-4% of patients have an actionable, serious risk alert.
New medications and risks are added when new publications with sufficient evidence are released. ActX covers most U.S. prescription drugs for which there is sufficient evidence of a genomic effect. We test for a wide range of actionable, adult-onset disease risks that have been recommended by knowledgeable authorities.
Under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), genomic information should not disqualify patients from health insurance, or affect its cost. Likewise, under U.S. federal law, employers should not discriminate against patients based on genomic information. However, it is important to note that U.S. federal law does not prevent other insurance companies such as life insurance, disability insurance, or long-term care insurance from using genomic information.
