Our working definition of Precision Medicine includes: creation of the evidence to achieve better prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and other issues related to health care that will lower the impact of disease based on an individual’s lifestyle, behaviour, environment, clinical, genomic, epigenomic and other molecular measures.
Precision Medicine, thus, aims to improve health outcomes and save money by targeting health interventions to those individuals who are most likely to benefit, underpinned by better understanding of individual diversity. This encompasses, but is not the same as, Genomic Medicine.
