Medication Management (2)

Precise Diagnostics for Better Outcomes

Our Medication Management service is a program designed to promote the safe and effective use of medications. Studies have found that patients with the same disease or condition have often been found to respond differently to treatments due to a combination of genetic factors, comorbidities and lifestyle choices. These variants can lead to insufficient therapeutic levels and undertreatment or resistance while excessive levels can lead to toxicity and/or tissue damage. NextGen’s precision medical testing services can help you achieve the intended outcomes from a prescription regimen.

The NextGen Advantage

We know medication is often the first-line approach for managing patient conditions and it’s our belief that providers should have the most advanced tools at their disposal to assist them in determining appropriate dosages for patients under their care. This belief is what drives us to make sure our labs stay at the forefront of the field and always utilize the most advanced technologies and methods of testing. While diagnostic tests are becoming more advanced, they are also becoming more complicated. These more advanced results can provide greater insight into a patient’s response to treatment, but understanding these results is imperative. NextGen Laboratories’ clinical division recognizes this gap between emerging technology and providers and are available to aid you in understanding and interpreting these results.

Some drugs commonly monitored for therapeutic levels or compliance through NextGen include those for heart disease, bacterial infections, epilepsy, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), certain cancers, arthritis, and psychiatric disorders. Additionally, NextGen Labs is equipped with testing options to help you monitor other areas that can affect the efficacy of treatment such as the level of functioning of various bodily systems and nutritional status. NextGen helps you look at the full picture in order to help you achieve Better Outcomes.
