Personalized Healthcare

Personalized healthcare, based on the uniqueness of each patient’s individual condition, situation, and needs, is the key to achieving population health and value-based care goals. We view personalized healthcare as a broader platform that includes genetics and genomics but also includes any other biologic information that helps predict risk for disease or how a patient will respond to treatments. The example of personalized healthcare would be presence of precise biomarkers like lipoprotein that can help to well predict risk for heart disease or stroke in certain individuals. These biomarkers can augment our traditional means of evaluating risk based on age, menopausal status for women, high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol levels.
