Since time has changed, the rectification, upgrading and innovation through disruptive ways have become a part of every aspect of our lives. From automobiles to communication every other line of lifestyle has seen an upgrade and so does the medicine.
Times have gone when to cure a patient the doctor had only limited access to sources for treatment, bounded to the implementation of certain methods to get positive results. Now, with modern times, medicine has leapt a faith and has advanced where ‘Precision Medicine has come out as an ultimate solution towards personalized healthcare.
Precision Medicine: Future of Healthcare
Modern times have brought us to a point where now we are discussing a new and innovative way of treatment. The human race is very privileged to be having an innovative disruption in the field of medicine which has developed personalized means of curing a patient through a deep study of their disease treatment which echoes to be the future of healthcare for a good cause.
But what is Precision Medicine?
Well, to answer this question the quote can be taken from the information provided by Precision Medicine Initiative. They state that precision medicine is “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.” Through its implementation, the treatment of patients has become easy and more conveniently apt to their problems.
Pathway to Accuracy:
Precision Medicine is an approach that has allowed doctors and researchers to be as precise as they can be while they’re trying to predict an accurate treatment of a disease. With an initiative as unique as this, precision medicine has made its space in the field of oncology quite interestingly. Through this initiative the accuracy in deciding which strategy of treatment and prevention for a particular disease will work on which group of people or type of people has become an easy step to take.
Precision Medicine in Oncology:
The concept of Precision Medicine isn’t new! It has been a part of the healthcare industry for many years now. However, the emphasis over its usage has brought this method into the public eye. As a concept, this approach has been used by many verticals of medicine but one of them that have recently gained advancement is in the field of oncology.
Yes, earlier the case of treatment for cancer used to be pretty much the same for everyone. Although, the fact that every patient reacts differently to the treatment of cancer, the doctors earlier had no idea about its cause. After decades of research, scientists have now understood that the cause behind the growth of patients tumors is due to their genetic changes that causes the rapid growth of cancer in their body.
In order to make the research and study more prevalent amongst the industry and the fraternity of doctors, Group Futurista is organizing ‘Future of Personalized Medicine Summit for Oncology 2019 in Munich, Germany. This two-day event is scheduled to be taking place on 14th and 15th of November where an expert group of panelists and speakers will grace the stage to share more in-depth insights about Precision Medicine, Role of AI in Precision Medicine, Future of Healthcare and much more.
