In Move Promising to Empower More Patients to Advocate for Tailored Health Care, PMC Launches Educational Platform Designed to Encourage Patient-Provider Interactions With Attention to Biology, Circumstances, and Values

In a move that promises to empower a greater number of patients to advocate for health care tailored to their biological characteristics, circumstances, and values, the Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new digital engagement platform designed to encourage patients to ask questions about molecularly guided prevention and treatment plans as well as the ways in which various medical interventions may affect their lives and routines. Part of PMC’s More Than a Number program, the new resource bolsters PMC’s capacity to facilitate more informed interactions between patients and their providers.

The website contains 13 articles on key topics related to disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. By updating the website in consultation with a steering committee comprised of patients and patient advocates, the Coalition plans to keep its growing network of patients apprised of new developments in personalized medicine as the field evolves.

“The More Than a Number initiative will expand the frontiers of personalized medicine by giving patients an enhanced opportunity to advocate for personalizing health care to their biology, circumstances, and values,” said PMC President Edward Abrahams.
