The world of genetics is quickly evolving, taking the industry by storm, and will undoubtedly have a tremendous impact on the care received by employees and thus employers’ health care costs. From pharmacogenomics to genomic sequencing to tumor profiling – genetic capabilities are seemingly boundless and thus overwhelming for employers looking for ways to interpret and leverage the space.  Where should employers be focusing their energies when it comes to genetics in health care?

  • How genetic testing for inherited disease risk is now poised to transform population-level health
  • In particular, the meaning and applications of pharmacogenomics,
  • What it means to have a systems-based approach to personalized healthcare, and
