Fulfilling the Promise of Precision Medicine

Nearly a third of healthcare providers are using precision medicine for patient care, primarily focusing on cancer treatment.

In a recent article published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, informaticians explore if interactive genomic reports with increased data visuals improve oncologists’ use of genomic data in care decisions.

What did they discover? Interactive genomic reports improved oncologists’ ability to accurately comprehend report details, such as sequencing quality and tumor purity, ultimately ensuring cancer patients receive the right care at the right time.

Why Informatics? So, healthcare providers can understand our genes and save our lives.
