DJ Patil, Stephanie Devaney: White House Seeks Ideas to Make Precision Medicine Work

medical health doctorThe White House is asking for input from the private sector and general public on what additional tools or methods can be used to customize healthcare delivery.

Federal Chief Data Scientist D.J. Patil and Stephanie Devaney, project manager of the White House’s Precision Medicine Initiative, wrote in a blog post published Friday that the Obama administration launched PMI to encourage people to share data that can help researchers and providers better understand diseases and manage care.

“We’re looking to a broad range of stakeholders to learn about new or expanded initiatives and programs aimed at enabling new ways to improve health and treat disease – and ways to use this information to inform our precision medicine efforts going forward,” Patil and Devaney added.

The administration seeks new techniques to share medical information across organizational boundaries while maintaining data privacy and security.

The White House is also interested in the development of technologies to analyze and secure big data, methods for bolstering the healthcare data science workforce and competitive programs to foster innovation.
