The future of genomic testing in primary care: the changing face of personalized medicine.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Primary care is recognized worldwide as a key component for improving health outcomes in the population. At the same time, healthcare systems are rapidly changing with increasing expectations from technological advances. Genomics is a major driver in changing how medicine is being practiced; however, the importance for primary care has been under-appreciated.
