Applications of Color Services and Technology


Genetic data is an important preventative tool. Individuals can use genetic results to better understand personal risk factors so that they can create personalized prevention plans. Organizations can benefit from aggregate data to understand population risks and invest in more relevant preventative programs.

Color programs offer preventative insights into cancer risk, heart health, and medication response.

Medication Management

When it comes to medications, one size doesn’t fit all. Several factors can influence response to medication including health history, body weight, and other medications being taken. Your genes can also influence how your body processes certain medications. Changes to medications should not be made on the basis of genetic tests alone. But genetic information, when combined with other factors, can provide a more complete data set for doctors to consider when prescribing medications.

Color analyzes 14 genes associated with how the body processes certain commonly prescribed medications. We also offer Clinical Pharmacy consultations to help participants and physicians understand and interpret results.

Longitudinal Insights and Research

Longitudinal studies incorporate multiple observations over short and long periods of time. Color’s technology and services facilitate ongoing communication and high levels of engagement with study participants over time. 

Common types of longitudinal data collected are changes to health status, updates related to health care received, and new surveys to collect new and additive data points. Color’s data management technology ensures that all data is accessible and usable so that health providers and researchers can derive optimal insights.

Population Health Management

Aggregate, population-level data and statistics are collected in a manner that is HIPAA compliant and respects the privacy and confidentiality of each participant. 

The aggregate data can provide valuable organizational insights for risk stratification and personalized care routing to improve care plans. The population-level data can also inform long-term resource allocation for health and benefits programs.
