ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Clinical companies, pharmacists, and doctors met in Albany to make sure people are getting the best personalized care.

C3D Medical, Luxor Scientific, and doctors in the community met at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown to see how genetics and technology can shape the future path of medicine.

By clinicals and studies, these companies are able to create technology that betters medical care for patients and allows less trials of prescription drugs.

"It's the right dose at the right time for the right patient. It deal with proper types of meds to address the proper type of problems. There has been so many variables in that world and that's why we've seen the prescription drug issues that we have in this country right now," said Scott Massey, C3D Medical Managing Director.

The goal of the group is to reduce the number of 30-day trial prescriptions that need to get handed out.

They all want to make sure patients are getting the right drug the first time.
