Precision Health Seminar Series

The Precision Health Seminar Series invites expert speakers to share meaningful, relevant, and late-breaking research on varied aspects of precision health. The interdisciplinary educational series, which takes place monthly during the academic year, features topics ranging from genetics to big data to health implementation (and much more) and is open to students, faculty, practitioners, staff, trainees, and the general public. Our goal is to increase understanding of precision health data, tools, and applications, to engage the academic community to enhance precision health research, and to support the implementation of precision health to health systems.

Patient-Centered Precision Health In A Learning Health Care System: Geisinger’s Genomic Medicine Experience

Health care is increasingly influenced by precision health and the learning health care system. Delivering patient-centered, genomics-informed care based on individual-level data in the current landscape is a daunting challenge, however. Development, testing, and implementation of a genomics-informed program requires multidisciplinary collaboration and building the concepts of precision health into a multilevel implementation framework. Using the principles of a learning health care system provides a promising solution. This talk presents the implementation of population-based genomic medicine in an integrated learning health care system—a working example of a precision health program.
