Bring the Power of Precision Medicine into Your Practice with NextGen EHR
Personalize patient care in NextGen EHR with Genomic Decision Support from ActX. ActX makes it possible to bring the power of genomics into your practice, beginning the era of precision medicine. ActX focuses on genetic risks where there are actions that you can take, providing straightforward, evidence-based clinical recommendations. ActX has partnered with NextGen to make these insights available in your normal workflow.
Check drug-genome interactions
89% of patients carry one or more variants that affect medications. As prescriptions are written in NextGen, ActX provides clinicians with alerts if there could be issues with adverse effects, efficacy or dosing based on the patient's genetics. This service covers most U.S. drugs with substantial evidence of genomic impact.
Identify actionable hereditary risks
Clinicians can use ActX genomic decision support to identify and understand their patients' actionable genetic risks. For the 3-4% of patients with actionable risks, providers will be alerted in their inbox and provided with recommendations for their effective management. Your patient's genetic data is regularly reanalyzed as new research becomes available, and clinicians will be notified if the analysis changes.
Access up-to-date information right from your EHR
ActX, integrated with NextGen EHR, creates a Genomic Profile for each patient you test, which is accessible within their chart. The Genomic Profile includes a complete list of potential drug-genome interactions, actionable hereditary risks, and carrier statuses for the patient — as well as complete clinical decision support for each finding. When new evidence becomes available, we update the Genomic Profile and notify clinicians if there is a major change.
A turn-key genomics service
