Extract

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of completing the draft human genome sequence in 2011, authors from the National Human Genome Research Institute of the US National Institutes of Health outlined the influence of genomic understanding across 5 domains: structure, the biology of the genome, the biology of disease, medicine, and improvements in health care.1 The authors assert that this is the era of enhanced genomic understanding of medicine, which is expected to usher in improvements in health care effectiveness by the end of this decade. It is thus fitting to explore how health information technology will contribute to or hamper the promise of genomic medicine.
