RxMatch allows healthcare providers to incorporate genomic data as a decision-making support tool when prescribing drugs in the care of their patients.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), providers can use the pharmacogenomic information to help decide the most appropriate treatment for each individual, including the identification of drugs that are more likely to work, avoiding drugs that might have adverse side effects, adjusting the dose of a drug, or determining if closer monitoring is needed.
The RxMatch report includes information on antidepressants, pain medications, heart medications, anti-inflammatories, antidiabetics, medications used before and after surgery, and many others. View the full list of medications here.
ADRA2A, ANKK1, COMT, CYP2C19, CYP2C9, CYP2D6, CYP3A4, CYP3A5, CYP4F2, Factor II/Prothrombin, Factor V / Leiden, HLA-B, MTHFR, OPRM1, SLCO1B1, VKORC1
Patients give a very simple cheek (buccal) swab. Once the Intermountain Precision Genomics laboratory receives the sample, the patient’s DNA is extracted and checked for quality and quantity.
Over 60 sites within the DNA of the sample are then tested and a report is delivered to the ordering provider (see sample report below). Providers can use these results to help decide the most appropriate treatment for their patient, including the identification of drugs that are more likely to work, avoiding drugs that might have adverse side effects, adjusting the dose of a drug, or determining if closer monitoring is needed.
Results are delivered to the ordering provider within 12 days of the sample arriving at the Intermountain Precision Genomics laboratory. Recommendations follow guidelines published by the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC).
RxMatch can be tested on a buccal swab specimen. View specimen and shipping requirements here.
Your RxMatch results will come as formatted in this sample report.
While some insurance companies cover genetic testing, please work with the patient’s insurance company for any pre-authorization requirements prior to ordering. The CPT code for this test is listed below for your convenience. If you have any questions or would like assistance, please call our customer service representatives at (435) 251-5780.
