Under a precision medicine approach, clinicians, academics, and pharma and biotech researchers and regulators aim to deliver the right drug for the right patient at the right time. Data, however, can present a challenge to precision medicine goals due to gaps in clinical care, research, and drug development when organizations don’t have the ability to capture and report on relevant real-world data. With the right systems to collect and share clinical and molecular data, the healthcare industry can realize the full benefits of precision medicine.
