What is Needed to Truly Deliver Precision Healthcare?

Despite expectations for individualized care, a majority of the U.S. healthcare system operates under a one-size-fits-all, trial-and-error care delivery model. This outdated practice results in missed diagnoses, adverse drug reactions, protracted illnesses, and premature death, wasting anywhere from $760 billion to $935 billion every year.

We know precision health care will improve outcomes, save lives and reduce waste and costs, but why are healthcare systems and providers slow to adopt?

During the Precision Medicine Leaders’ Summit: Precision Health, Brian Patty, MD and hc1 CEO Brad Bostic discussed the reasons why and solutions for delivering precision health to all patients.
