Description

Precision medicine promises to improve outcomes and reduce costs through targeted, data-driven, personalized therapies. However, organizations still face significant challenges in implementing personalized medicine programs. The issues around quantity and quality of data must be addressed, in addition to making genomic information usable and meaningful at the point of care. Hear from several organizations that are working to make precision medicine and pharmacogenomics programs part of their standard of care as they share the goals of their programs and what lessons can be learned.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Analyze the implementation of a pharmacogenomics program within a community-based health system
  • Describe opportunities that precision medicine presents, such as the discovery of new biomarkers that predict disease risk and therapeutic response
  • Discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with using genomics in daily practice

Audience: 

Physician, CMO, CMIO
