Precision Medicine at Geisinger – Making DNA Sequencing Part of Routine Clinical Care
September 25, 2018, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDTFree
John Bulger, DO, MBA, Chief Medical Officer Population Health, Geisinger Health System and the Chief Medical Officer of Geisinger Health Plan, and David Ledbetter, PhD, Executive Vice President & Chief Scientific Officer at Geisinger Health System. At Geisinger, the goal is Caring – for the people and communities we serve to improve health. Precision Medicine aims to incorporate genomic data into medical decisions to improve effectiveness. Geisinger’s aspiration is Precision Health, which expands the model to promote health and wellness. Drs. Bulger and Ledbetter discuss their experience in DNA sequencing of more than 90,000 Geisinger patient-participants, revealing over 700 with potentially life-threatening conditions whose risk can be greatly reduced, and their current transition from a research framework to incorporate genomic data throughout the care continuum on a routine clinical basis.
