Hero Background


Bringing precision medicine to mental health

We empower clinicians through our platform to optimize medication selection/dose and track their patient’s response to treatment. Our pharmacogenomic test results along with patient reported outcome (PRO) software help facilitate a more personalized approach to treatment.

The Tempus mental health platform

Many factors influence a patient’s treatment and response to medications. Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is an objective component to provide personalized treatment and improve clinical outcomes.

The Tempus nP pharmacogenomic test informs medication selection and dosing for patients experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD and other mental health conditions.

Your patient’s PGx results are a part of a comprehensive, data-driven platform designed to empower you to offer your patients precision mental health care. Every Tempus PGx report also includes access to the Tempus Real World Data tool, and treatment response patterns from Tempus PRO™

Your DNA is complicated. Paying for DNA testing doesn’t have to be.

To ensure transparency, Tempus performs a benefits check and contacts your patient if we expect your patient’s out-of-pocket cost to exceed $295. We believe cost should never prevent patients from receiving the medical care they need, and we want patients to feel comfortable knowing what they will owe. As a result, Tempus offers several different payment options that patients can choose from depending on their insurance status.

Tempus also offers a financial assistance program to provide access to our tests for patients in financial need. If you have any questions, please call or text our Customer Success Team at 312.598.9961.

This is data-driven precision medicine

This is the future of healthcare.
