Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s Precision Medicine Journey

At the Digital Health Conference on Tuesday, Susan Zook, Senior Vice President, Precision Medicine, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, shared the organization’s precision medicine oncology journey with a focus on sharing aggregated cancer genomics data, reported a Healthcare Informatics article. 

She spoke with Jonathan Hirsch, Founder & President, Synapse on how healthcare systems and providers are sharing aggregated cancer genomics data using the Syapse platform, rapidly bringing the most promising treatment insights to cancer patients and moving towards making Vice President Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Initiative a reality.

“It’s been a learning journey over the past four years, and despite what we know, we know there’s a lot that we don’t know,” she said. “We believe that precision medicine is the cancer care of the future, and there are so many benefits to patients. Through precision medicine, we can contribute to the development of more information and data and get started on the foundation to build this into the standard of care sooner rather than later.”
