4/27 – Wider Than Precision Medicine: Leveraging IT for a Holistic Patient Engagement Approach

A Complimentary Webinar & TweetChat from healthsystemCIO.com,
Coming Thursday, April, 27 @ 12:00 PM ET
When we hear the term “Precision” we often think of a very targeted, exact or calculated approach — images of finely tuned laboratory or mechanical instruments come to mind. The term has now been applied to medicine, and Precision Medicine promises the customization of care that is tailored to the individual patient, based on genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. But, in the truest sense of the word, shouldn’t Precision Medicine, or more aptly Precision Healthcare, take into account all that we can know about an individual? For example, what are their health goals? How do they perceive their own health status? How do they want to be engaged in medical decision making or how do they choose to engage others? These factors are as much about providing Precision Healthcare as the DNA sequence that determines drug metabolism. Precision Healthcare recognizes these same diagnostic, cellular and genetic findings in conjunction with the personal values and beliefs that individuals hold. In this webinar, learn how leveraging technologies that bring both perspectives together can create a vision of true Precision Healthcare.
