Marc Williams, MD, Director, Genomic Medicine Institute, Geisinger Health System. Precision Medicine has the potential to transform the way care is delivered and, if realized promises to improve outcomes and value to the healthcare system. Geisinger Health System has implemented the GenomeFIRST™ program that analyzes whole exome sequencing data from tens of thousands of participants to identify medically actionable information to return to participants and their providers. Dr. Williams discusses how innovative informatics approaches are being utilized to optimize the return of results to ensure that improvements in outcomes and value can be realized.
