The field of genomics and precision medicine is set to alter the foundation of how we administer healthcare. By examining an individual’s genome, we create customized medical plans tailor made for them. This is a solution for real engagement, beyond health and wellness by creating informed healthcare consumers with detailed information about their unique health.
Advances in genomic testing have lowered the cost of genomic testing so that is affordable for everyone. This has led to an awakening of the potential of genetic information. Using your DNA we can determine what medications are most effective for you, what the ideal dosage is, and what conditions – if any – you are predisposed to. These advances will make modern diagnosing look like a guessing game.
Yet, many genomic companies are having difficulty procuring enough samples to create a diverse dataset.
