#46, Unlocking the Potential of Human Genomic Data: A Conversation with Curt Medeiros & Barry Wark from Ovation
In this episode of the Healthcare and Life Sciences podcast, Curt Medeiros and Barry Wark from Ovation join Eric Zimmerman from AWS Startups to discuss genomic data’s importance in advancing precision medicine. They share insights on how to build a successful healthcare data business, including the risks of not putting enough resources behind data initiatives. They also highlight why precision medicine is making outsized progress in oncology, and other areas that are ripe for progress. Finally, they emphasize the importance of mapping genomic data to longitudinal phenotypic data to derive insights that improve care and outcomes.
“Data is not inherently valuable. Answers and insights that come from that data could be very valuable. So, thinking from the beginning – What is the product? What’s the answer that we are going to help our customers derive? This is pretty key.”
