Genomic Medicine

Dr. Dave Moskowitz, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of GenoMed, Inc based in United States participates in Risk Roundup to discuss Genomic Medicine.

Overview

The promise of Genomic Medicine is here!

It seems across nations, thousands of individuals are already being diagnosed, treated, or having their treatment changed, based on the information gathered from their individual genome. This is possible due to the advances in technology and speed of DNA sequencing and analysis, which now permits near real-time disease diagnosis, helping it to move it into the clinical workflow and decision-making process.

The increasing availability of thousands of genomic tests for disease diagnosis, several targeted drug therapies and use of pharmacogenomic data for drug and dosage selection implies that genomics is on its way to getting integrated into healthcare delivery model across many nations. This brings us the real potential to change healthcare from being reactive care to truly preventive care that is personalized.

Let us evaluate this further:

  • What is the current state of diagnostic genomics?
  • How is genomics impacting healthcare?
  • How will it shape healthcare in the coming years?
  • How is healthcare industry viewing genomic medicine?
  • Where are the opportunities?
  • Is the human genetic research data sufficient to understand human diseases so far?
  • What are the current challenges with genome interpretation for disease diagnosis?
  • Where has the progress been made when it comes to human disease genomics?
  • What technological advances has changed or transformed our ability for human disease genomics?
  • How to incorporate genomics into healthcare delivery? What impact will it have on healthcare delivery?
  • What are the key enablers of genomics to integrate in the delivery of healthcare?
  • What are the challenges in diagnosing diseases?
  • What is the state of diagnosis of complex diseases?
  • What advantages genome scale technologies have brought human healthcare?
  • Which diseases and its associated genes are targeted for genomic medicine?
  • What role current state of healthcare system plays in enabling genomic medicine?
  • How close is genomic medicine to becoming a routine part of modern medicine?
  • What will the success of genomic medicine depend on?
  • Do we know enough about human DNA to have effective approach to genomic medicine?
  • Do we have effective ability to interpret genomes today?

Conclusion

Privacy and Security are critical if Genomic Medicine is to successfully integrate in to healthcare. Time is now to discuss Genomic Medicine Risks and Rewards!

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve Global Peace through Risk Management. It is her strong belief that collaboration within, between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the Security Centric Integrated Cyberspace, Geospace and Space Risk Management framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the Digital Global Age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!

At Risk Group, Jayshree is driving the thought leadership on “Strategic Security Risk Intelligence”! She believes that Cyberspace, Geospace or Space (CGS) cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space- Security Risk Research Centers that will merge the boundaries of Geo-Security, Cyber-Security and Space-Security.

In 2015, Jayshree launched “Risk Roundup” an Integrated Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space-Security Risk Dialogue. Risk Roundup Webcast/Podcast are available on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Risk Group website, and professional social media.

Jayshree’s inaugural book, The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

Risk Roundup: Webcast/Podcast, a global initiative launched by Risk Group, is an integrated cyberspace, geospace, and space (CGS) security risk dialogue for individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA). Risk Roundup is directly trying to promote and enhance CGS risk intelligence by collective participation of decision makers from across NGIOA.

Risk Roundup is released in both audio (Podcast) and video (Webcast) format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group

Risk Group is an integrated cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS) security risk research organization. Risk Group is on a mission to epitomize collective risk intelligence of nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) as the synergistic intersection among independent as well as interconnected and interdependent CGS security risks to help achieve an effective process for better collective security risk intelligence, management and governance than silo and fragmented security risk approach that we have across nations today. Risk Group is determined to engage the collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability to manage CGS security risks—risks impacting individuals and entities across NGIOA. Having a collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability will be transformative for not only achieving CGS security but also global peace.

Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
