GuildLink and myDNA Partner to Deliver Genetic Testing in Pharmacy
GuildLink has announced a pioneering partnership with myDNA, Australia’s leading genetics interpretation company, to expand genetic testing services in the community pharmacy sector.
More than 10,000 myDNA tests have already been ordered by Australian GPs and specialists. This service has now been extended to be offered in pharmacy in an innovative collaboration between the patient’s pharmacist and medical practitioner.
GuildLink’s GuildCare platform enables myDNA accredited pharmacies to manage all professional services with one seamless software. GuildCare also identifies more Clinical Interventions than any dispense or other software systems.
Allan Sheffield, Managing Director of myDNA Life, the company behind the myDNA test, said advances in genome mapping technology make the health benefits of a personalised approach to medication, nutrition and exercise more accessible to patients and consumers.
“myDNA continues to lead the way in the clinical application of pharmacogenomics interpretation in Australia,” he said.
“GuildLink has a wealth of experience in providing software solutions to community pharmacies. So it was a natural step to combine our skills and expertise to enable more pharmacies to offer genetic test interpretation and enhance their professional services range and reputation.
“Through this partnership, even more patients will have access to the improved health outcomes that detailed knowledge of their DNA can provide. Patients will also benefit from the close collaboration between pharmacist and doctor.”
GuildLink CEO, Ross Gallagher, says this is one of several new innovative partnership technologies being added to GuildCare this year.
“myDNA is a great example of us partnering with a health driven, innovative business that shares our vision, enabling pharmacies to drive the safety and quality use of medicine of their patients,” he said.
myDNA tests will soon be available on GuildLink’s GuildCare, Australia’s No 1 pharmacy software for professional services.
