      HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY:
      PERSONALIZED MEDICINE:
      INTEGRATION OF INFORMATION


      Enabling Personalized Medicine through
      Health Information Technology:
      Advancing the Integration of Information



      From a recent Health/Medical News blog item

      This Brookings Institute report notes that
      in the future medical treatments will most
      likely be more tailored to individuals based
      on their genetic makeup



      However, current federal policies and
      regulations" are not in step with genomics
      and personalized medicine in order to
      individualize diagnosis and treatment.
      Similarly, policies creating incentives for
      the adoption of health information technology
      should ensure that the invested infrastructure
      is one that supports new-care paradigms as
      opposed to automating yesterdayÕs health care
      practices."




      This report outlines policy and operational
      changes that would address the gap between
      the promises of biotechnology and the
      shortcomings of present policies and
      regulations.





      A related commentary:




      A commentary featured in the January 19 issue
      of The Journal of the American Medical
      Association (JAMA) from AHRQ Health IT grant
      recipient, Alex Krist, M.D. calls for the
      design of a patient-centered health information
      system that goes beyond the Personal Health
      Record. Krist explains that in order for
      technology to be used, a system should be
      designed to help patients access health
      information, interpret data from multiple
      sources and serve as a tool to facilitate
      action.



      Sincerely,
