Childhood arthritis is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children, which if uncontrolled, can result in irreversible damage to the joints. Successful treatment with biologics is often through trial and error and is costly. This presentation will describe our Precision Medicine Network and specifically the health economics platform. We will describe our collaborative research on individual treatment pathways to evaluate cost-effectiveness, affordability and preferences using simulation models of risk, benefits and costs associated with genomics-based care for childhood arthritis to improve patient outcomes.
