Rebecca Hurd/Harmonyx Diagnostics
On a mission to personalize medicine. Harmonyx Diagnostics is an innovative company that is changing the way medication is prescribed in America.
Founded in 2009, Harmonyx believes patients should be empowered to know if their medication will be safe and effective. Patients should also have the power to pay for affordable genetic testing without the hurdles health insurance can cause, and that pharmacists play a key role in giving patients this information by providing Harmonyx tests at their locations.
With the Harmonyx pharmacy partnership, participating pharmacies can provide genetic testing to ensure their patients’ medications are safe and effective.
Harmonyx is a fully automated genotyping system to deliver fast, easy and accurate results to qualified healthcare professionals, helping them determine the appropriate medication and dosing for each patient.
