Personal & Precision Interventions
22 November 2018
Every individual has a unique combination of characteristics, so any intervention is more or less likely to be effective. By bringing together behavioural, biological, genomic and clinical data together, we can begin to develop precision interventions for each patient.
But there are challenges. Who owns your health data? What is the patient perspective? And do we need diversity in design to deliver on the breadth of needs? Are existing improvements matching up to their potential, and how could systematic testing result in better outcomes for all?
