At OneOme, LLC (“OneOme”) the privacy of our patients and those using our services is very important to us. OneOme delivers information that helps healthcare providers and patients (collectively referred to herein as “you” and “your”) make more informed, individualized treatment decisions through the use of our pharmacogenomic tests (“Tests”). In addition, you may have access to a third-party healthcare provider network arranged for and/or made accessible to you through OneOme (“Provider Network Program”). Ultimately, the results of the Test (“Results”) are delivered to the provider or the patient through our Provider and Patient Portals (“Portal”) or by other secure channels as requested by the provider and or patient. Collectively, the Tests, Provider Network Program, Results and Portals comprise the OneOme Service(s) (“Service(s)”).
For healthcare providers and patients who use the Tests: individuals provide a DNA sample in the form of a cheek swab or blood sample which is delivered to OneOme. OneOme then runs the Test on the DNA sample and provides the healthcare provider and/or the patient with the Report containing the test results by making the Report accessible on the Portal.
