The components that will launch the age of personalized medicine are coming together rapidly. Thanks to advances in genomics, treatment regimens for cancer and other diseases can already be tailored to fit an individual’s DNA. Massive volumes of data are streaming in from wearable devices and crowdsourced feedback, which artificial intelligence is using to generate new
strategies. New data and tools are also letting patients take more control of their medical decisions and contribute to their outcomes. In an era when they can adjust their mattress by remote control and turn up their hearing aid with an app, they now expect this clout. Medicine is taking its fight against disease to a new level … and this time, it’s personal.
