Personalized medicine entails using a patient’s genomic information to evaluate if a certain treatment strategy is likely to be helpful for that patient, as well as implementing the appropriate preventative measures at the appropriate time. The implications of personalized medicine on the practice of medicine are numerous, ranging from the customization of drug treatment regimens based on a patient’s unique genetic background to the modification of health information systems to accommodate individualized clinical decision support approaches. Consider the implications for the provider of employing this genetic information in the patient’s care and treatment, as well as the influence on the provider’s clinical decision-making information systems. Should information systems be updated to include this information in electronic prescribing? Why do you think that is? What challenges can an organization’s health information technology employees face in enabling personalized medicine with health information system technology? What does this mean for its health-care providers?
