Precision medicine holds great promise to improve health and reduce the cost of healthcare. However, the infrastructure on which healthcare operates wasn’t designed for genetics, so the healthcare system is not prepared to deliver fully on that promise.
Drawing on direct engagement with leading clinicians, hospitals, health plans, laboratories and governing organizations, as well as the most robust genetic diagnostics data on the market, this document describes the barriers faced by stakeholders across the system and specific steps to overcome those barriers.
This document addresses:
- What is the Genetic Health Information Network?
- What are the near term (2-3 year) opportunities to improve the clinical and economic value genetics brings to healthcare?
- How might a long-term, fully functional Genetic Health Information Network enable the healthcare system to deliver on the promise of precision medicine?
