Abstract: As the claims that personalized medicine is just around the corner continue to grow: where are we on that journey?  Jonathan will discuss "from the trenches" the challenges in moving from concept to reality. We will look at the high-level architecture needed for a healthcare system to "turn on" personalized medicine and we will discuss actual approaches that are being undertaken.  We will also discuss why a healthcare system may want to invest in this approach.
