Implementation in the U-PGx project funded by the European Community’s Horizon 2020 Programme

In collaboration with the German company bio.logis, the Royal Dutch Pharmacists Association (KNMP) and many clinical partners, the Medication Safety Code Card was implemented as part of the U-PGx decision support infrastructure in seven European health care environments (The Netherlands, Spain, UK, Italy, Austria, Greece, Slovenia). The established infrastructure serves as the enabler of the U-PGx PREPARE (PREemptive Pharmacogenomic Testing for Preventing Adverse Drug REactions) study which investigates if the emerging approach of pre-emptive genotyping of an entire panel of important PGx markers is cost-effective and results in a better outcome for patients.
