- Physicians have long had to rely on trial and error to determine the right drug and dose for a patient to treat certain health conditions. Due to significant advancements in genetic testing, that model is changing. Pharmacogenomics, the practice of identifying genetic markers that impact a person’s response to drugs, is increasingly able to ensure accurate administration of the right dose of the right medicine at the right time. At NorthShore University HealthSystem, a simple genetic test can determine which course of prescription drugs will work best for a patient.
