Precision medicine, the treatment and prevention of disease that takes into account variability in genes, environment and lifestyle for each individual is gaining momentum across the healthcare landscape due in part to the level of recent healthcare IT investments. However precision medicine is a very specialized area that requires a substantial amount of expertise, which is why many of the organization’s currently conducting precision medicine are large academic medical centers or multi-hospital health systems with available internal and external resources.
HIMSS Analytics has recently completed their latest Essentials Brief on Precision Medicine, which provides a high level view of how healthcare organizations are approaching the use of technology to address precision medicine. Speakers Brendan FitzGerald, Director of Research, and Matt Schuchardt, Director of Market Intelligence Solution Sales, will provide a high level review of insight in this topic area. Additionally, they will provide additional detail and analysis based upon data from LOGIC, the HIMSS Analytics market intelligence tool, on how recent and future adoption of certain technologies will help organizations capitalize and benefit from the work being done in the precision medicine arena.
