Essentials Brief: 2017 Precision Medicine Study

 May 10th, 2017

The 2017 Precision Medicine Study is a market snapshot of how U.S. healthcare organizations currently approach and plan to approach precision medicine from an IT perspective. While the interest level and potential expectations of precision medicine are extremely high, developing programs and conducting precision medicine at the point of care requires expertise, funds, and IT sophistication that many organizations currently do not have. 

Highlights of the study include:

  • Year over year adoption of precision medicine, including segmentation by organization type and bed size
  • Clinical areas in which precision medicine is being conducted and organizational IT approach
  • Future organizational plans to take sample and sequence analysis in house
  • Primary barriers of adoption for conducting precision medicine
