Navigating precision health with population genomics

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

Precision health is transforming the healthcare experience. By applying advances in genomics, precision health can improve patient outcomes and increase the efficiency of healthcare delivery.

However, finding an enterprise-wide solution is critical to successfully realize the true benefits of precision health. Leading health systems, like HealthPartners, are already using population-scale genomics initiatives to do just that.

In this session, join Dr. James Lu, MD, PhD, Helix co-founder & CEO and Leslie Dockan RN, MHA, HealthPartners VP Primary Care & Operations as they discuss why HealthPartners has chosen to implement a population genomics program and the impact they expect to see on their community.

Key learning points:

  • Understand the benefits of population genomics for patients & health systems
  • The current models being used for population genomics initiatives
  • The benefits for precision health of building a genomic dataset that can be “queried often”
