A long-held assumption and expectation has been that genomics-based precision medicine will provide clinicians with the tools and therapies they need to consistently deliver the right treatment to the right patient while simultaneously reducing waste and yielding cost savings for health systems. The pace of discovery within the field of precision medicine has been remarkable, yet optimal uptake of new genetic tests and genetically targeted therapies will occur only if payers recognize their…

Value Creation in Precision Medicine: Acknowledging the Need to Devise New Ways to Measure. The Value of Healthcare

In this article, Porter advocates that considering patients as the main stakeholder of healthcare will improve value for all stakeholders, and provides suggestions on how to implement value-based healthcare.

Precision medicine is a conceptual model for disease taxonomy that extends the long-established clinical pathologic correlation disease model to include and emphasize genetics, genomics, and systems biology knowledge and is predicated on ideas that application of the vast amount of genomics and other biochemical data generated by life sciences research over the past 60 years can yield more precise diagnostics and therapies.

Expanding evidence leads to new pharmacogenomics payer coverage.

It has been nearly 20 years and finally, the promise of pharmacogenomics is becoming a reality through increasing clinical implementation and recent significant milestones in payer coverage.

Plasma PIK3CA Mutation Testing in Advanced Breast Cancer Patients for Personalized Medicine: A Value Proposition.

It was evident that robust clinical evidence exists to support the role of ctDNA PIK3CA mutation evaluation in identifying patients with advanced breast cancer who could benefit from PI3Ki treatment.



Specialty medications: traditional and novel tools can address rising spending on these costly drugs.

The evolution of the specialty market is described, the current state of specialty medication use is characterized, key challenges and potential solutions are articulated, and collaborative efforts to reduce waste and promote value are articulated.

The term precision medicine was thrust into the national lexicon in early 2015 with the launch of the Precision Medicine Initiative by President Obama in his State of the Union Address. The mission

Cytochrome p-450 polymorphisms and response to clopidogrel.

Carriers of a reduced-function CYP2C19 allele had significantly lower levels of the active metabolite of clopidogrel, diminished platelet inhibition, and a higher rate of major adverse cardiovascular events, including stent thrombosis, than did noncarriers.
