Description

Precision medicine represents a rapidly evolving frontier for providing the best available treatment and preventive care for patients by 1) Accounting for individual variability in environment, lifestyle and genes, 2) Leveraging health IT innovation to harness very large sets of health-related data linked to populations and patients, 3) Integrating genotypic, phenotypic, and other data capturing the patient experience, and 4) Developing new tools and approaches including patient-reported outcomes, analytics and software, molecular diagnostics, clinical and imaging techniques. When combined with new informatics approaches that enable access to and integration of disparate data, researchers are able to better understand the basis of disease for treatment and prevention. This session will provide insight on how innovative national investments in biomedicine and health IT are advancing precision medicine approaches, helping to accelerate cross-sector collaborations between researchers, patients, practitioners, and other health system stakeholders.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how emerging technologies, tools and platforms for precision medicine are driving scientific discovery for treatment and prevention of disease
  • Recognize how organizations spanning the healthcare ecosystem can engage with, and leverage greater value from leading health data infrastructure initiatives
  • Identify some of the primary challenges and solutions for the ‘practical’ integration of biomedical and clinical research data with other sources of data
  • Describe leading approaches for advancing patient-centered health IT for improved outcomes and cost savings
  • Understand how ‘basic’ biomedical data be used to enhance assessment of at-risk patients and improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease
