The US Air Force Patient-Centered Precision Care Genomic Medicine Research Program hosted a symposium entitled 'Changing the Health Care Paradigm' on 27 September 2011 in Laurel, MD, USA. The program provided a unique opportunity for subject matter experts to participate in critical discussions on the current and potential outlook for the implementation of genome-informed healthcare. The implications for patient privacy, data management and security revealed the ethical, legal and social issues faced by clinicians, patients and policy-makers. Highlights from these discussions are summarized in this article.
