Precision Medicine Enablement via Advanced Diagnostics

  • Fully integrate PGx services into the pharmaceutical care process to support useful clinical decision making through increased availability of data.
  • Ensure providers and payors have secure and timely access to the information necessary to identify patients who have not achieved clinical goals of therapy.
  • Optimize testing usefulness and interpretation by strengthening the relationship between the FDA and laboratories that provide PGx testing.
  • Promote precision medicine literacy among providers and patients in the context of its application to the clinical care role in optimizing medication use.
  • Enable evidence-based processes and strategies that support precision medicine as a tool used in the CMM process and enable effective standardization, awareness and interpretation.
