Modern Healthcare

The White House has released its plan to create and manage a database containing the medical records of 1 million or more Americans.

It will enable clinical trials of targeted therapies and use data from mobile health devices “to correlate activity, physiologic measures and environmental exposures with health outcomes.”

Plans for the database are outlined in a 107-page report, The Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort Program—Building a Research Foundation for 21st Century Medicine.
