Infectious Disease PCR Solutions
Annual patient visits to physician offices with infectious and parasitic diseases as the primary diagnosis in the United States now exceeds 15 million. While infectious and parasitic diseases have increased, a corresponding increase in antimicrobial resistant infections has developed, costing the healthcare system between $21–34 billion. Now more than ever, PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is the standard of detection that physicians, hospital systems, and payers must employ to make fast, accurate diagnosis decisions.
Real-time PCR is one of the foremost methods of detecting a bacteria, virus, or fungus on the molecular level, with higher degrees of accuracy and considerably faster results, compared to the days or weeks it typically takes to receive results with culture testing. These result delays can mean the difference between life and death.
Finding solutions to help patients live healthy and productive lives is a top priority for our team of professionals at HealthTrackRx. From our Clinical team to our Customer Care team, we collaborate and problem-solve on behalf of patients, always keeping in mind the need for fast, accurate, clinically actionable results.

Personalized Patient Antibiogram
HealthTrackRx’s PCR testing provides targeted pathogen detection and prevalence, which we describe in detail on each patient report, utilizing a personalized Antibiogram.
Our patient-specific Antibiogram removes the guesswork by detecting antibiotic resistant genes, helping patients receive the optimal antibiotic that works for them. This detailed Antibiogram also provides effective information for optimal treatment outcomes, saving healthcare costs, and mitigating risks.
Support your practice’s antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP) by reducing over-utilization of broad-spectrum antibiotics, mitigating unnecessary antibiotic exposure and costs of repeat testing. These industry-leading PCR solutions are critical in the fight against infectious diseases and toward the goal of helping more people be well and live well.
