ONC: Data Standards, Security Key to Precision Medicine Success

HealthITAnalytics | February 27, 2020

ONC is working to advance precision medicine research by supporting projects that improve health data standards, adopting policies that support data security and privacy, and promoting data sharing among researchers. As part of the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI), a federal effort to accelerate the next generation of health research, ONC and its collaborators are seeking to rethink data access, storage, aggregation, and analysis. The increasing availability of electronic health data in the 21st century has tremendous potential to ignite a new era of inquiry and discovery. With precision medicine, researchers will be able to make new discoveries about health and illness to bring a more personalized approach to patient care,  Teresa Zayas Caban, Kevin Chaney, MGS, Stephanie Garcia, MPH, Tracy Okubo, PMP and Robert Carroll, PhD wrote in a recent blog post.
