Helping employees get on the right treatment faster, so they can get back to work and life.
Mental illness costs Canadian employers and estimated $20 billion each year in losses related to turnover, absenteeism and presenteeism. Dynacare recognizes the value of solutions that support effective management of existing conditions and employee well-being.
Genecept Assay®, our pharmacogenetic test, helps employees with a mental health condition get the right treatment faster so that they can get back to work and life.
Because everyone is different – particularly in their genetic makeup – as many as half of all individuals respond poorly to the first psychiatric medicine prescribed for them. The Genecept® test looks at key genes in an individual’s DNA that affect their response to medication.
Coupled with the medical history, this test helps the clinician to identify which medication is most likely to be effective – so your employee can feel better, faster.
