Toward Precision Health – Pushing the Frontiers of Privacy, Interoperability and Digital Literacy

Personalizing health and care is a key objective for the digital transformation of health systems around the world. Precision health goes one step further: integrating various sources of health insights - including medical, multi-omics and lifestyle data as well as social determinants of health - to improve clinical and financial outcomes, accelerate treatment research and promote a much needed shift from acute to preventive health and care. This extra step, however, is pushing the frontiers of privacy and interoperability and requiring a new approach to data governance and professional development. Are we ready for what’s next in health? This session will convene international experts to discuss strategies and innovative approaches in moving toward precision health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the main drivers leading the push for precision healthcare and personalised health.
  • Examine the major benefits and potential disadvantages of personalised healthcare to citizens.
  • Recognise the major barriers and challenges that exist within the health systems that may slow a move to precision health.
