Adoption of Personalized Medicine May Yield Significant ROI; Time to Achieve Benefit Varies Among U.S. Health Care Stakeholders, According to Deloitte Report
Date:1/27/2009

developed a framework that factored in the ROI for personalized medicine by examining case studies categorized by two scenarios -- altering the course of therapy or introducing a companion therapy -- across a number of clinical conditions, ranging from HIV/AIDS to breast cancer. The results of the analysis found that the ROI and time to yield benefit varied by scenario across each stakeholder group.

According to the report:

  • The literature review of two clinical scenarios found that all stakeholder groups experienced a positive ROI under certain conditions.
  • Consumers consistently experienced a positive ROI across all scenarios.
  • Payors received only a marginal benefit, and that was after six years.

"Personalized medicine facilitates better care and lower costs, and has the potential to benefit every major stakeholder in the U.S. system -- most importantly, its patients," added Paul Keckley, Ph.D., executive director of the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions.

Highlights of key stakeholder implications found in the report include:

  • Consumers stand to gain the greatest ROI from personalized medicine, often within the first year. However, upfront costs will likely be required because these therapies may be more expensive than conventional treatments. Long-term benefits of personalized medicine create an incentive for adoption, although education will also be critical to help consumers make informed care decisions.

  • Providers will benefit from the new tools offered by personalized medicine to improve patient care; however, reimbursement issues will need to be worked out with payors. Additionally, as providers implement electronic health records, new decision-support tools will help facilitate the adoption
