NJIT researcher to head precision medicine strategy effort

The New Jersey Institute of Technology's (NJIT) Atam Dhawan has been picked to help create strategies that will assist with integration of health technologies into the care delivery system.

The effort is an answer to President Obama's call to move precision medicine forward, according to an announcement. Dhawan, NJIT's vice provost for research, will map out strategies that will improve integration of cancer testing kits, heart monitors, rehabilitation devices and more.

Dhawan said in a statement that point-of-care technologies will help the industry achieve the goal of providing quality care at low costs. Announcement
