For example, GRTI has 100% network availability to its reservation and a poverty rate around 49%.
For its aging demographic, GRTI implemented an Alert 1 program that is similar to the call-for-help Lifeline pendant, and it has supplied enhanced 911 service.
The authors apply the GRTI to genetic variation in the APOE gene for the situation of the statin-prescribing threshold of LDL-C.
The authors acknowledge that their exploration of the GRTI for statin use represents a proof of principle requiring further development, yet the underlying methodologic assumptions are sufficiently constricting that the proposal may have limited utility.
Presumably, such examples of applications are what the authors have in mind, although, regrettably, they do not explicitly discuss the ramifications of the GRTI beyond the inference of prescribing thresholds.
In imagining the future of healthcare, access to medical-record data may ultimately be more useful, both for reviewing an individual's course of treatment and for understanding the population trends related to the clinical traits that are eligible for GRTI, than genotyping of a few common variants whose utility may be limited to imprecise estimates of the population trends alone.
 Non-standard abbreviations: LDL-C, LDL cholesterol; GRTI, genotype ratio treatment index.
Guided by GRTI
General Manager Belinda Nelson, Chairman/President Dale Enos and Secretary Albert Soatikee, Alston toured the Gila River facility and received an overview of how the telco was formed.
We used data from a cohort study in a proof-of-principle analysis of the following: LDLc concentration as the clinical scenario; statin prescribing as the therapeutic decision; APOE genotype frequency ratios as the tool to assess the mean treatment threshold used in a population; and geographical, social, and diseasestatus groups as exemplary strata within which to apply the proposed GRTI.
CONVERTING GRTI BACK TO AN ESTIMATED MEAN LDLc TREATMENT THRESHOLD
2 shows this relationship of GRTI to x.Ifan x value of 4.0 mmol/L were the mean prescribing threshold for a group receiving statins, the GRTI (i.e., the ratio of [epsilon]3/[epsilon]2 to [epsilon]3/[epsilon]3) would be 0.56.
If such distributions were unknown, then data on genotype and phenotype would be required to estimate a GRTI. The GRTI would identify heterogeneities in treatments at the population level.
