Development of Mental Health Prescription Decision Support with Pharmacogenetics

Prescribing medications for mental health remains a challenge. In an effort to use unbiased biological data to improve prescribing in mental health, RxRevu partnered with the Mental Health Center of Denver and was awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to develop a software tool that converts a patient's pharmacogenetic test results into a digestible/machine readable format, and incorporates mental health provider preferences into a user interface that serves as a one-stop view in the Electronic Health Record for mental health providers to make the most up-to-date and informed decisions about what medications they select for their patients.

Project Results
Understanding how mental and behavioral health providers leverage pharmacogenomic data to speed up the recovery of their patients is critical for emerging genomic findings. The results of this project have been submitted to Annals of General Psychiatry and are currently under review.
