Precision Medicine Task Force

The Precision Medicine Task Force was established as a short-term group, convened to provide recommendations that support the President’s Precision Medicine Initiative(PMI). Announced in January, the mission of the PMI is to enable a new era of medicine through research and technology that empowers patients, researchers, and providers to work together toward the development of individualized treatments. ONC is a key participant in the PMI, responsible for advancing data standards that support precision medicine, addressing relevant privacy policies, and advancing innovation in health IT. The task force will identify data standards and implementation specifications that make health IT data available to participants and researchers for precision medicine.
