The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health IT should add information about Precision Medicine to its Interoperability Roadmap, the office’s Precision Medicine Task Force recommended.

Specifically, the task force said the ONC should provide an Interoperability Roadmap addendum for PMI and that it should engage stakeholders to accelerate the definition of a minimum data set and standards for PMI as well as Patient-Generated Health Data.

President Barack Obama announced the Precision Medicine Initiative — a medical model that proposes the customization of healthcare, with medical decisions, practices, and products being tailored to the individual patient — during his 2015 State of the Union Address.

ONC’s advisory task force also said the office should consider high value, non-EHR data sources to promote completeness of patient information documentation and that the PMI should encourage use of standard APIs to source data.
