The Personalized Medicine Coalition, representing innovators, scientists, patients, providers and payers, promotes the understanding and adoption of personalized medicine concepts, services, and products to benefit patients and health systems.
Personalized medicine is an evolving field in which physicians use diagnostic tests to determine which medical treatments will work best for each patient or use medical interventions to alter molecular mechanisms that impact health. By combining data from diagnostic tests with an individual’s medical history, circumstances and values, health care providers can develop targeted treatment and prevention plans.
Amidst the tumult of COVID-19, we are at the precipice of a new era in medicine that, for the first time, promises to put the individual at the center of care. This contention underpins PMC's Strategic Plan and Research Program for 2021.
