GeneYouIn is a Canadian genetic testing company that puts consumers first — we believe that people should have control over their genetic data and we simply assist with the understanding of their health conditions and medications. Our primary focus is aiding consumers and healthcare providers with the selection of the most effective drug therapies.
Our Vision is to bring the benefits of pharmacogenetics to primary care and specialty clinics that serve the majority of our day-to-day health needs.
GeneYouIn has developed a proprietary genome analytics platform called Pillcheck™. This is a genetic test that uses state-of-the-art DNA sequencing technology to identify specific variations in genes responsible for drug absorption and metabolism. The system provides personalized, actionable recommendations for the selection of the most commonly prescribed medications. The SaaS (software as a service) platform is a scalable application that enables secure sharing of genetic data between patients and healthcare providers and it can also facilitate the coordination of care by integrating test results in the EMR (Electronic Health Records). It is compliant with both the American HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and Canadian PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act).
Our Mission is to make genomics equitable, reliable and empowering for all.
GeneYouIn makes it easy for Canadian consumers to research genetic testing options by disease or procedure and select an appropriate genetic test; we also facilitate a simple, self-administered sample collection. Our team of experienced genetic scientists are available to provide the interpretation of the genetic test results directly to consumers and to support communication with healthcare providers.
GeneYouIn was founded in Canada in 2012 by a team of experienced genetic scientists, bioinformaticians and Health IT experts.
