What is precision medicine?

Last January President Obama announced a bold new initiative to revolutionize how to improve health and treat disease. Known as the Precision Medicine Initiative, it imagines a future where treatment and prevention strategies will be tailored to individual people based on their unique genes, microbiome, health histories, lifestyles and diet. At Medicine X last September, Claudia Williams explained precision medicine as a call to action for everyone.


Why Everyone Included™ is essential to the success of precision medicine

At the center of this groundbreaking effort is a unique public-private-patient partnership that represents the best ideals of Everyone Included™ as a driver of healthcare transformation. In order for this initiative to be successful, those involved must develop trust in one another’s aims, respect for one another’s expertise, and empathy for one another’s views, as freely-shared health data is a remarkable resource with which we will shape a healthy future for everyone.
