This article in Health It Analytics indicates that 60% of survey respondents say that they currently have precision medicine processes in place, while 17% said that they are in the process of developing such strategies. The article also reports that of those that do not plan on pursuing precision medicine, 24% cited insufficient technical infrastructure.
