Company description

The prevailing 'one-size-fits-all' approach to drug treatment of diverse populations is failing: in the US alone more than half of all prescribed drugs fail due to lack of efficacy or serious side effects. This results in hundreds of thousands of deaths each year, and billions of dollars in costs. Efforts in personalized medicine from healthcare practitioners and/or pharmaceutical companies focus primarily on selecting the right drug for the right patient. Drug dosage is however often overlooked and rarely optimized for the individual patient. 

Our InsightRX software platform fills this gap by providing an informed, patient-specific dose by leveraging mathematical models, patient demographics, physiological characteristics, genomic data, drug concentrations and biomarkers. The software platform, mobile app, and API iteratively optimize dosing and treatment strategies, and provide clinically relevant analytics to healthcare practitioners and pharmaceutical companies.
