Information about the Genomic Medicine Institute For Physicians

Last Updated Tuesday, April 12, 2011 2:11:52 PM

Genomic medicine is revolutionizing patient care — from risk assessment, to treatment decisions, to patient management. There are numerous genomic tests available today. Experts expect the numbers will only increase. Many of these tests are not yet widely prescribed by physicians.

El Camino Hospital has taken a leadership role to help these sophisticated technologies become more generally available. Our leadership takes a three-pronged approach: identifying genetic and genomic tests that are most appropriate for our patients and physicians, supporting their integration into physician practice, and providing educational and counseling support to patients.

The case for integrating genomic medicine is compelling. The right test, for the right patient, with the right interpretation can make all the difference in patient care.
