Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Genomics-guided precision medicine has become an integral component of patient stratification for treatment decision support of cancer and other diseases, including rare diseases. Yet genomics data integration with clinical data, such as outcomes data, and real-world evidence from disparate healthcare data systems still remains a challenge. This panel will discuss recent advancements, needs, and integration challenges to develop real-world evidence data assets in support of treatment decisions, clinical trial protocol design, and other clinical and research applications.
