This research provides new findings on how the scope of genetic testing programs should be expanded, answers what is Watershed.
Oportunities for precision medicine partnerships. With COVID-19, precision medicine focuses on better understanding of how and why the coronavirus affects different individuals in different ways. This in turn indicates types of treatments that can be targeted toward biological pathways that vary between individuals.
As more precision medicine approaches are coming into practice, in some cases kickstarted by the COVID-19 pandemic, hospital and health system leaders are best advised to not pick sides in the one-size-fits-all versus tailor-made debate.
