On July 8, 2015, the Executive Office of the President released a Statement of Administration Policy supporting the medical research provisions in H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act.  According to the statement, the “Administration appreciates the legislation’s support for the President’s Precision Medicine Initiative, which would advance a new model of participant-centered research to accelerate biomedical discoveries and provide clinicians with new tools and therapies tailored to individual patients’ needs.  This will also require enabling patients to access their data and accelerating interoperability between electronic health records.”
