Mayo Clinic CEO Offers New Vision for Personalized Patient Care
Date:3/4/2009

WASHINGTON, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Denis A. Cortese, M.D., president and CEO of the Mayo Clinic, offered a new vision for personalized healthcare in America at a time when Congress and the administration are discussing changes in the healthcare system.

The Mayo Clinic is committed to implementing personalized medicine for its patients. By targeting specific treatments to individual patients based on an analysis of differences in their molecular makeup, personalized medicine increases the effectiveness and safety of many existing therapies and spurs the creation of new treatments.

Dr. Cortese was introduced by Paul Stoffels, M.D., company group chairman, global pharmaceutical research and development, Johnson & Johnson. Dr. Stoffels said that Johnson & Johnson is committed to a personalized approach to medicine, using its broad expertise in healthcare research and development to develop targeted therapies for major diseases.

The keynote address at the Personalized Medicine Coalition's annual luncheon took place against the backdrop of the Obama Administration's health reform summit, which the president announced last week in his address to Congress. Johnson & Johnson sponsored the luncheon, which was held at the National Press Club.

Dr. Cortese discussed how Mayo Clinic's implementation of personalized medicine works in practice and what it means for Mayo's patients. He emphasized the importance of interoperable computerized patient records and communication among different providers in determining the optimal treatments for individual patients.

"Health information technology plays a huge role in synthesizing large amounts of data, creating knowledge that will drive evidence-based decision making," Dr. Cortese said.

These insights should guide spending for two sums in the economic stimulus package: $19.2 billion for health information tech
