Personalized Medicine

With advances in genomic medicine, Mission Health are now able to provide patients and their healthcare providers with information that could help minimize toxic side effects from drug treatments and maximize drug effectiveness. Mission's Personalized Medicine program offers a scientific, individually guided approach to improve the health of our population, with the potential to replace the trial-and-error approach to drug treatment to manage cancer and other chronic diseases.

With sufficient funding, the overall goal is to enhance and optimize the quality, safety and effectiveness of the care of each individual patient using evidence-based practices.
