Before and After: HIT Galvanizes Precision Medicine Success

2:30pm - 3:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Healthcare leaders recognize the promise and potential of precision medicine in the delivery of care but few have deciphered how to implement a meaningful precision medicine strategy. Murfreesboro Medical Clinic and SurgiCenter has achieved success with a program that makes pharmacogenomic information readily available and meaningful at the point of care. Nicholas Cote, DO, will outline MMC’s strategy, and share stories about improved patient outcomes – and reduced provider burnout. He will cover the HIT infrastructure implemented to ensure genomic data is ingested and integrated with clinical information, so providers can easily access it as they make medical decisions. He will discuss lessons learned, key technology considerations, workflow best practices, and feedback documented from both patients and providers.

Learning Objectives

  • Define how genomic/pharmacogenomic information is being used today at the point of care within a multi-specialty environment
  • Describe the barriers that impede practical adoption of precision medicine, specifically the lack of informatics functionality to make results readily available and meaningful within the patient context
  • Create a coalition within their own organization based on examples illustrating positive impact precision medicine has on care quality and outcomes; provider and patient satisfaction; and business success in a competitive healthcare environment
  • Assess their own organization’s readiness to implement precision medicine, and apply lessons learned and strategies from the presentation to guide their own precision medicine program
