What is Precision Health?
Precision Health aims to improve health by putting cutting-edge tools of science and technology to work for individual patients, in order to predict and prevent disease before it strikes. Stanford Medicine’s Humanwide pilot project captured the promise of that vision, as primary care teams partnered with patients to take a deep dive into their data — from lifestyle to DNA — to identify risks and concerns and map a plan for a healthier future.
As David Gorn reports, Humanwide used genetic screening, digital health devices, wellness coaching, and other strategies to craft a promising approach for personalized preventive care.
