About us

OneOme was established by Invenshure, LLC and Mayo Clinic to provide a comprehensive, cost-effective pharmacogenomic solution integrated into patients’ everyday clinical care. OneOme’s key product offering is the RightMed® comprehensive test, a physician-ordered genetic test that predicts how a patient’s DNA and current prescriptions may affect their response to medications. The analysis is provided to the physician in the form of static and interactive reports that identifies which prescription drugs are — or aren’t — likely to work. This information can help providers make better prescription decisions, protect patients from adverse drug reactions and drug ineffectiveness, and reduce healthcare costs.

Our mission is to deliver the most cost-effective, comprehensive, clinically actionable pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing and tools for all providers and patients worldwide.
