What to expect for Precision medicine by 2030?
All of us are unique. What may good for one persons health may be terrible for another’s. So how do we account for these differences to optimize health for all? Well, precision medicine aims to takes into account an individuals variability in genes, environment and lifestyle to provide refined diagnoses, more rational treatment options with the overall aim of preventing disease and optimising health.
So, what can we expect for the future of medicine by 2030? Outlined in this video are seven areas where there is great opportunity for achieving precision medicine.
This includes improving diversity in studies, better managing large data sets and gathering more high quality data that can be acquired both in healthcare settings and through wearable devices, integrating and interpreting this data using artificial intelligence (notably deep neural networks) and ensuring that the data is kept safe and secure using blockchain technology.
And most importantly, making sure the output health advice will improve the health of the patient.
Whilst there are many challenges ahead for achieving precision medicine, acknowledging these issues now will enable the development of strategies to overcome them to enhance the efficacy of precision medicine.
