At some point in the future, an individual’s genome will be a foundational part of their medical record. Driving towards precision medicine involves increasingly comprehensive sequencing and arrays, access to standardized testing, integration into systems used by health care providers to manage patients, and building evidence that genomic information has clinical utility and can be used to improve outcomes. Sustainable incorporation of genomics into routine care requires efficient testing, readily accessible genomic data and decision support, and data aggregation that can assess patient outcomes. In this session, various stakeholders, including both healthcare (large, integrated healthcare systems), healthcare information technology, and insurance providers, will share their perspectives on current approaches and the challenges they observe on achieving this goal.
