Recent focus on Precision medicine (PM) has led to a flurry of research activities across the developed world. But how can understaffed and underfunded health care systems in the US and elsewhere evolve to adapt PM to address pressing healthcare needs? We offer guidance on a wide range of sources of healthcare data / knowledge as well as other infrastructure / tools that could inform PM initiatives, and may serve as low hanging fruit easily adapted on the incremental pathway towards a PM based healthcare system. Using these resources and tools, we propose an incremental adoption pathway to inform implementers working in underserved communities around the world on how they should position themselves to gradually embrace the concepts of PM with minimal interruption to existing care delivery.
