Hero Background


Bringing personalized 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 can help inform medication selection and dose for patients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health conditions.

Patients who receive PGx testing with Tempus also have access to Tempus PRO™, a digital tool that allows you to track your patient’s response between appointments. You can now easily and accurately measure patient treatment response over time, to deliver better mental health care.1

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.
