Rising Healthcare Costs
The cost of Antimicrobial Resistant infections annually has been estimated at $21-34 billion in the US healthcare system alone, which includes more than 8 million additional days in the hospital2. It is estimated that by 2050, AMR may lead to $100 trillion in world GDP loss3. HealthTrackRx is addressing this public health crisis head on through developing advancements in PCR technology and implementing innovative solutions for our clients, that help you treat patients fast, with accuracy.
HealthTrackRx is an industry leading infectious disease laboratory providing accurate, targeted molecular diagnostics. With over 4,000,000 samples processed and a turn around time within 24 hours of sample receipt, our technological advances in PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) testing reshape patient care by mobilizing faster clinical decisions and helping providers treat patients quickly and accurately. To curtail the cost of treating resistant infections repeatedly, HealthTrackRx provides a personalized, proprietary Antibiogram, which provides antibiotic resistance gene detection and lists potential antibiotic efficacy.
PCR vs. Culture
When an accurate diagnosis matters, speed of pathogen identification and clinical actionability are key. HealthTrackRx PCR testing identifies what culture misses, particularly fastidious organisms – the pathogens that are especially difficult, if not impossible, to culture.
|HealthTrackRx PCR||Traditional Culture|
|Turnaround Time||Results within 24 hours*||Results can take an average of 3-14 days|
|Accuracy||~ 99% Sensitivity and Specificity, for all present pathogens, including co-infections||Typically only detects the primary pathogen|
|Detection||Rapid detection of fastidious organisms such as fungi, anaerobes and resistance genes||Extended incubation time for fungi and anaerobes. Potential for “mixed flora” and no specificity of pathogens|
|Antibiotics||Less susceptible to antibiotic use||IS affected by antibiotic use|

Benefits of HealthTrackRx PCR
PCR is able to detect bacteria in a higher percentage of patients that are symptomatic compared to urine culture. In addition, PCR can detect more polymicrobial infections compared to urine culture. Culture-based testing alone can miss up to 67% of UTI infections. With the rise in antimicrobial resistance, PCR testing can identify resistance genes within 24 hours, such as the resistant gene NDM-1 in E. coli and Klebsiella, leading to early effective treatment.

“I really appreciate the rapid turnaround of HealthTrackRx PCR. Traditionally, if we have an abscess and I’m concerned it’s infected, I know it’s going to be three or more days before I get my answer back from a traditional culture sensitivity. I can’t leave the patient unprotected that long. So, I start a prescription of broad-spectrum antibiotic that generally works but that’s not the best medicine because that broad spectrum antibiotic is killing a lot of friendly and helpful bacteria that we don’t want to kill. By having the fast turnaround of PCR sensitivity, I can use narrow spectrum antibiotics to be more focused in my diagnosis. I can wait a day before starting selecting a pill because I know the next day I’m going to have the right answers, and not create another problem with my antibiotic choices.

“What I like about PCR is that we get all the bacterial testing, the fungal testing, and the viral testing all at once so we can really narrow down a problem. We can choose from those three different categories and treat the patient appropriately in a timely manner, which is fantastic. It also helps diagnose the infection, receive definitive test results and answer questions for us immediately.
