Fulfilling the promise of precision medicine
Precision medicine has the potential to transform healthcare by providing more accurate, targeted diagnoses and treatments. But innovation in healthcare systems is difficult in the best of times. In ‘Doing well? Fulfilling the promise of precision medicine’—a new report sponsored by Qatar Foundation—The Economist Intelligence Unit examines the potential of precision medicine, what it delivers today, and the challenges associated with its adoption in large health systems.
The report looks at how precision medicine is poised to start a revolution in how healthcare is delivered. Changes in process, training, and infrastructure, however, are essential to remove barriers to making those benefits real for patients. Even in the most hospitable environments, those changes will be challenging. Only if all stakeholders—from clinicians to patients to payers to policymakers and the broader community—are educated about the challenges and opportunities precision medicine offers can this kind of healthcare be effective for all.
‘Doing well? Fulfilling the promise of precision medicine’ includes findings and recommendations that can help to inform healthcare leaders, policymakers, and patients throughout the world.
