Genomic medicine is the application of our rapidly expanding knowledge of the human genome to medical practice. While genomic medicine carries the promise to revolutionize medicine by "personalizing" care to the level of the individual, complex organizational, provider, and veteran challenges remain before widespread adoption of genomics in clinical care becomes possible. Health Services Genomics will contribute to the process of developing health care delivery models that plan and deliver genomic services to the veteran population and also assess impact of genomic medicine on the delivery of health care to veterans. This Portfolio encourages innovative research for evidence-based planning of veteran health services in genetics and genomics, and the development of tools and models for genomic translation within the VA health system.
