Adventures in Precision Medicine: The Good, the Ugly and the Real


Nov 16, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm CST

The future of healthcare is targeted, data-driven, and includes personalized therapies that improve treatment outcomes and reduce costs.  Hear how organizations are developing initiatives to help researchers uncover the genetic underpinnings of diseases that provide real-time decision support while also enabling clinicians. The speaker will share experiences with managing this paradigm shift both in terms of the challenges associated with incorporating genomics into existing workflows and the successes they have seen.


Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the clinical successes that various populations of health can realize from the use of precision medicine
  • Discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with incorporating genomics into everyday practice
  • Evaluate the concerns around the use of patient information for discovery, treatment, and access including data security and patient privacy/consent
