Researchers from Vanderbilt University Medical Center have begun recruiting volunteers to participate in a clinical trial that will decode the immune system through the immunome – the genetic backbone of the immune system.
"With Patient Insights, healthcare providers can instead automatically identify high-risk patients or analyze high-cost encounters and quickly take action to impact care quality and protect the bottom line," says James Lawson, vice president of payment and population solutions at 3M Health Information Systems, in a statement.
