Published on

After the Human Genome Project was completed in 2003, early successes in genomic medicine fell short of the initial
high expectations. But today, a potent mix of influences — including innovation in biology and technology, market demand and consumerism — is furthering an evolution that crosses industries. Healthcare providers can now personalize care plans thanks to lower sequencing
costs that allow genomic data to be combined with electronic health data. Life sciences companies can develop targeted therapies that prevent and alleviate disease symptoms. To capitalize on new advances
in science, cognitive computing, analytics and drug discovery, senior leaders across the ecosystem should act quickly to: make genomic medicine a key component of enterprise strategy; address relevant skill gaps; and determine how partnering can bolster critical capabilities.
