About us

At OneOme, we deliver personalized medicine through a targeted, high-quality pharmacogenomic test combined with clinical decision support co-developed and exclusively licensed from Mayo Clinic. We work closely with Mayo Clinic to enhance existing pharmacogenomic testing by ensuring our comprehensive test is ordered by a healthcare provider and by providing highly actionable pharmacogenomic results across many areas of medicine.


The OneOme RightMed pharmacogenomic test integrates a patient’s genetic profile, current prescriptions, and drug-drug interactions and processes this information using a proprietary algorithm-based platform—developed with years of pharmacogenomics expertise and curated clinical data—to provide a dynamic, actionable report. We continue to develop, improve, and update our algorithms and database of clinical information, enabling healthcare providers to treat each patient uniquely based on their pharmacogenomic results. Now you have the potential to make a prescription the right one, the first time.

OneOme is a privately held company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and backed by Invenshure, LLC and Mayo Clinic. Our team of scientists, pharmacists, engineers, and seasoned staff create solutions to significantly expand the role of pharmacogenomics in individualized medicine.
