But few leaders have developed a precision medicine strategy that ensures this valuable health data is used, shared and managed across the organization and over time. Join Joel Diamond, MD, as he discusses the state of precision medicine today and what steps need to be taken to integrate genetic and genomic insights within the clinical workflow for improved clinical decision making.
