WHO ELSE SHOULD WE EDUCATE? WHAT IS THE ROLE OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS, INSURERS, AND POLICY MAKERS?

Physicians are not the only ones who need to be familiar with genomics and personalized medicine. Healthcare providers, insurers, policy makers, and others will need to become familiar in order to best serve their constituents. Each of these groups needs to serve the individual as well as provide service in a cost effective manner. They will need to understand the value of genomic tests for diagnosing and treating disease as well as for maintaining the health of the people they serve. Understanding value and costs will be essential in order to formulate guidelines and make decisions on the particular tests that should be covered for specific health conditions.
