The offering should facilitate a more individualized treatment plan for patients.

Premier Health Group Inc. (PHGI:CSE; PHGRF:OTCQB; 6PH:FSE) announced in a news release it partnered with Navigator Genomics to incorporate into Premier's Juno electronic medical records system and MyHealthAccess apppatient results from Navigator's pharmacogenomics testing.

The test, which requires a saliva swab, reveals information about a patient's genetic responses to, or ability to effectively use, medical cannabis and 416 of the most prescribed medications, recommending those that would work best. It also indicates possible drug-to-drug interactions, inhibitors and inducers.

"By offering to place Navigator Genomics' test results directly into our Juno EMR and app, we can ensure our patients are prescribed the best medication and avoid those that simply do not genetically work or are possibly harmful," Premier's CEO Dr. Essam Hamza said in the release.

The Navigator Genomics test is sold directly to consumers or their physician, and the company is offering Premier Health Group patients and physicians a 10% discount on the test kit price.

Once a patient's results become available, they will be uploaded to Premier's EMR system and app, for discussion between patient and physician. (Such a discussion can take place virtually using the app's telemedicine feature, for instance.)

Also on Premier's app, Navigator Genomics will provide educational material about medical cannabis use. It will include cannabis glossaries, webinars, videos whitepapers and a list of chronic medical conditions that qualify a patient for medical cannabis use.

"Your results can lead you to receiving 'personalized medicine' from your doctors and dispensaries who can then prescribe what will work best and the medications for you to avoid. Consumers can thus avoid 'trial and error' while saving significant time and money and improve their overall quality of life," Navigator Genomics' Founder and CEO Travis Parr said in the release.
