Patient-Centered Precision Health In A Learning Health Care System: Geisinger’s Genomic Medicine Experience
Medicine in the 21st century is being increasingly influenced by two concepts: Precision Medicine and the Learning Healthcare System. To broadly realize the promise of precision medicine (and health), it is necessary to use frameworks of implementation science grounded in the philosophy of the learning healthcare system to achieve robust implementation and value. This presentation will describe the implementation of a precision health program in an integrated healthcare delivery system aspiring to become a learning healthcare system. It will include early outcomes for the CDC Tier 1 genomic medicine conditions that identify significant care gaps and opportunities for improvement.
