Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: As of today, there is a definite lack of concrete and consistent reimbursement methodologies in support of precision medicine, especially when it comes to genetic testing. It is time to start formulating plans and proposals, and to put a framework or guidelines in place to arrive at a common ground.
