GaryG Posted July 22, 2020 Share Posted July 22, 2020 THE PROMISE OF PERSONALIZED HEALTH CARE Personalized health care can transform patients’ lives by delivering care tailored to the individual. It enables us to prevent, diagnose and treat patients more effectively and quickly. PAST It used to be that patients who suffered from a broad category of disease were treated with the same medicines, leaving physicians to puzzle over why they worked for some people and not others. PRESENT Now, scientists have begun to understand, target and diagnose illnesses on a molecular level and our approach to treatment has fundamentally changed. However, our understanding of medicine continues to grow every day. FUTURE In an era of digital technology, we will be able to increasingly tailor medical treatment to the needs of individuals and small groups of patients. Far more information will be captured, stored and analyzed to learn how diseases manifest themselves and how patients experience them day-to-day. Combined with a deeper understanding of molecular science and new methods for diagnostics, this development will change how we research and develop medicines. jack14 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
