Pathway Genomics and Salud Interactiva, a company backed by Sinca Inbursa, today announced a partnership that will make Pathway’s wide range of clinical genetic testing with advanced Artificial Intelligence analysis available to millions of Salud Interactiva’s users in Mexico. Salud Interactiva, a leading third party administrator offering health services in 3 countries, has a network of over 6 million users and associations comprised of insurance companies, private clinics (e.g. Bio Clinique), and other corporate partners.

“Salud Interactiva is dedicated to providing our users with the most advanced and affordable health products available in the world today,” said Jorge Woolf, Salud Interactiva’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Our research determined that the wide range of tests that Pathway offers are at the forefront of the genetic revolution we are seeing in healthcare today that is driving the trend towards predictive medicine,” said Eduardo Cárdenas, Salud Interactiva’s Chief Medical and Operations Officer, “Physicians and users within our network will now have affordable access to information about how their own genetic blueprint impacts their health.”

Pathway Genomics, located in San Diego, California, provides advanced, next-generation sequencing genetic testing services to 40+ countries globally. Jim Plante, CEO and Founder of Pathway, said, “It’s very rewarding to align ourselves with a top-tier partner like Salud Interactiva to extend our global reach and help people access this technology to improve their health.

“Our tests reflect the tens of billions of dollars of research that has been invested by governments, academic institutions, and private industry to understand the health impacts of the human genome. We now know that our genetic makeup often has a direct link to things like our risk for cancer and dozens of other diseases, how we respond to medications, or which diet and exercise programs will be most effective.

“Our tests have been designed to address the areas of our health that have a direct genetic association.”
