John Waslif

John Waslif is the Managing Director of Arrowhead Publishers and Conferences and the Producer of their Annual Personalized Medicine Conference, which brings together multiple stakeholders, including payers, molecular diagnostics companies, genome analysis/interpretation companies, clinicians and many others in order to provide attendees with a holistic view of the personalized and precision medicine landscape.

Genomic sequencing is moving into clinical care, but this technological advance threatens to outpace our ability to use it effectively in clinical practice and to address the associated health policy issues. A key issue is whether payers will cover sequencing and what evidence will be needed to document its value. The TRANSPERS (Ctr for Translational & Policy Research on Personalized Medicine) Center at UC San Francisco has just released a Policy Primer for Genomic Sequencing, the press release for which can be viewed here: http://tinyurl.com/owbzaya.

Uptake of genomic and precision medicine is hindered in part by an undereducated health care workforce. Last Spring, UCSF launched the first large-scale open online course on this topic for health care providers to an international audience of 13,000. 
 
The course aims to provide participants with baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, the skills to evaluate the clinical validity and utility of new tests, and an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field. 
 
Precision Medicine has the potential to change fundamentally how health care is practiced, but requires a health care workforce that understands the complexities of this field. As one of the instructors of the course, Jeanette McCarthy’s research on the genetic underpinnings of infectious and chronic diseases has led to over 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Foley & Hoag’s Bruce Quinn, MD, Ph.D., a national expert on Medicare policy and health reform has offered his thoughts on the FDA’s recent notice of intent to issue draft guidance for regulation of lab-developed tests (LDTs) in a couple of forums recently. Here are the urls:

New discoveries in genomics research are exciting to physicians because they can see that genomics targeting may provide greater effectiveness in patient treatments. In collaboration with the Genomics Medicine Institute (GMI) at El Camino Hospital and Genetic Alliance, NCHPEG (National Coalition for Health Professionals Education in Genetics) has developed a CME curriculum on genomic medicine.

Direct-to-consumer (DTC) genomic services have generated controversy over when it is appropriate to provide genetic results to individuals. Critics have argued for restrictive regulation of such services, and even their prohibition, on the grounds of the harm they may pose to consumers. However, others argue that these services offer consumers the ability to make better-informed health decisions based on increased understanding of genetic risks.
