Applications of Color Services and Technology
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.
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.
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.
Color offers innovative employee benefit programs designed to make it easy for employees to have a better understanding of their health, and take the preventative steps needed to stay healthy. We use genetics as a foundation to help identify overall health risks within your company and connect employees to the support and programs that are most relevant to them.
