LEHI, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Frelii Inc. (OTC PINK: FRLI) (“Frelii” or “the Company”) today announced the details of its recent agreement with Orn Health Inc. (Orn), a medical services provider, to license the Frelii exome and whole genome sequencing and artificial intelligence (AI) technology for use with new franchisee partners in their own medical practices for enhancing patient treatment resources.
Currently, Frelii provides a consumer-level DNA Kit Package™ and report with alignment specifically for OTC cannabis, CBD, supplements and nutraceuticals that can be disseminated directly to a consumer without the presence of a physician or licensed healthcare provider. Frelii has forged this partnership with Orn to create broader opportunities for the company within the medical and healthcare industries, specifically. Now they will be able to offer their more enhanced Medical Grade DNA Kit Package™ and report, inclusive of specific panels that can be selected only by a licensed physician or healthcare provider.
“Frelii delivers one of the most comprehensive and robust exome and whole-genome DNA sequencing and analysis services in the world to aid physicians with disease management, precision pharmaceutical or cannabinoid dosing and overall patient genetic profiling to aid in diagnosis and treatment,” said Ian Jenkins, CEO of Frelii Inc. “It does not, however, provide medical advice or treatment recommendations. In order for patients and individuals to get advice regarding their genetic predisposition to certain medical diseases or conditions, or their body’s ideal alignment with pharmacogenetic factors, a licensed healthcare provider or medical doctor must be involved to properly interpret and apply the data available through our enhanced medical grade package. This is why we have forged a partnership with Orn.”
Orn will be responsible for creating a network of franchisees that have secured licensed rights to access Orn’s platform of resources, which include: Frelii Medical Grade DNA Kit Package™ and reporting data, the Frelii DNA Wallet™ platform, a proprietary telehealth platform, ERM, proprietary treatment methodologies, marketing materials and billing support. Orn will include facilitating billing reimbursement through various insurance providers on behalf of franchisees. This will result in an interconnected grid of national and international healthcare facilities, hospitals groups, clinics, doctor networks and managed care facilities that will all be able to access and leverage state of the art precision medicine, precision dosing and precision treatment SOPs with the advanced genetic data provided through Frelii; all designed to help serve more patients while managing costs.
“Physicians need access to leading technologies that enable them to treat more patients accurately with advanced diagnostic and treatment resources, while still managing costs,” said Dr. Hans Jenkins, D.O., Principal Director and Founder of Orn Health Inc. and Chief Medical Officer of Frelii, Inc. “Pharmacogentics, when combined with advanced treatment SOPs and methodologies from Orn will give healthcare providers much better tools to effectively treat critical healthcare issues facing physicians today, such as the opioid addiction crisis.”
The current business strategy from Orn is to establish a strong network of franchise partners across the United States and Canada. From there, specific international target geographies will be considered. At present, Orn will maintain the franchises for Utah, Nevada and California. Among the first independent franchise target geographies being considered are Washington, Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma.
“Frelii anticipates a long and successful relationship with Orn,” said Leslie Norris, COO of Frelii and Board Director. “The business mission of Orn is in complete alignment with the core value proposition of Frelii. We know that patients and their physicians can achieve much better results together when they can ‘see’ the entire genetic profile of each individual. Issues such as those that will affect possible disease alignment and what type of pharmaceuticals and cannabinoids can be ideally absorbed effectively come into true focus when our unique human genome becomes a day to day element in diagnosis and treatment.”
