Clover Health leverages precision medicine for new in-home primary care program

Clover Health, a healthcare data and technology company, established an in-home primary care program that features genomic testing integration capabilities.

Clover's in-home primary care program offers member-centric care plans wherein primary care physicians, nurses, social workers, medical assistants and care coordinators care for members in their home.

YouScript, a proprietary clinical decision support tool, provides the genomic testing capabilities leveraged by the in-home primary care program. The tool helps personalize each program member's medication regimen and care teams can use it to reduce the risk of adverse drug events.

In addition, the program offers regularly scheduled check-ins, active monitoring and home-based lab and radiology testing. Clover collaborates with its in-network physicians to identify members who would benefit most from the program. To date, around 500 people are enrolled in the in-home care program in New Jersey. Clover plans to expand the program nationwide.
