Lessons from the Field
Stanford Medicine’s Precision Health vision has a bold goal: to transform the way medicine is practiced by using digital device technology, genetic testing, and other methods to predict and prevent disease before it strikes. The year-long Humanwide pilot project was the practical application of that idea in the primary care setting of Stanford Medicine’s Santa Clara clinic.
As David Gorn reports, early results indicate that the move toward more holistic, personalized preventive care was popular with patients and providers. Both reported higher satisfaction with the data-driven, team-based Humanwide model, which aimed to improve health in the long term rather than treat the malady of the moment.
