Personalised and precision medicines represent an evolution in healthcare, in which traditional clinical information and new data points including genetic data, and healthcare technology come together to match the right patient with the right treatment at the right time.

In short, it means moving away from the one-size-fits-all approach, in which many patients are treated with the same therapy, to targeted treatments that are often based on the patient’s DNA and the DNA of their disease.

In November 2019, Blue Latitude Health sponsored the 15th Annual Personalized Medicine Conference hosted by the Personalized Medicine Coalition. Healthcare professionals, patients, payers, providers and pharmaceutical executives joined together to discuss the challenges and opportunities for those operating in this space.
