The age of precision medicine is upon us and already impacting health delivery and treatment choices. While most of the activity, and discussion, centers around the use of precision medicine and therapies for oncology, the future of precision medicine is bright with the rapid proliferation of home testing and diagnostics to help consumers not only assess their risk for a wide range of conditions – but to also help them better understand what treatment options may work for them. Seeking to answer some of the questions related to the future of precision medicine, the DHC surveyed 105 US physicians (a mix of primary care and specialists) on the SERMO network to ask them about their opinions about their current use, future interest, and the impact of precision medicine on their patients. The above highlights are from that research.
