Genomics & Corporate Wellness: A Perfect Match

Employee demand for a greater emphasis on total well-being and healthier work environments is driving the growing popularity of corporate wellness programs. Organizations are realizing that they need some type of wellness initiative to stay current and competitive.

Genoma International is at the forefront of personalized, DNA-directed healthcare. Our corporate wellness programs deliver impressive results: increased employee health, wellness and productivity, and a dramatic reduction of healthcare-related expenses. Our data-rich, genomic approach effectively tailors prevention and treatment programs to the needs of each individual.

A Real-World Example:
Genoma International co-founder, Dr. Joe Veltmann, developed and implemented a personalized, DNA-directed program using genomic testing for a 16,000 member, self-insured Florida company. Not only did the genomic medicine model improve health outcomes in participants, it also identified and mitigated undisclosed chronic disease risks with evidenced-based interventions. Over a 4-year period, this comprehensive model resulted in cost savings of 20% annually, and saw improvements to employee health, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis.

How does it work?

A genome is a complete set of genetic instructions. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomic analysis can identify individual predispositions, and tailor successful prevention and treatment strategies based on each employee’s specific biochemistry. Genomic testing shines a light on a person’s genetic blueprint, providing the scientific data and analytical information needed to develop an individualized approach to:

  • Predispositions to certain diseases
  • Chronic disease treatments
  • Nutrition and lifestyle interventions
  • Selection and dosage of appropriate medication

Programs can range from transforming the cafeteria menu with nutrigenomics, to implementing a comprehensive genomic healthcare program. Genoma International will customize a program for your company that benefits your employees and improves your bottom line.
