What is the Future of Personalized Medicine?

Posted on: August 7th, 2014 by Rakesh Sethi

Imagine having a “Bio ID” card with your unique characteristics. All your unique characteristics like Phenome, Genome, Micro-biome, Environmentonome, Diet, and Lifestyle are on the card. You could be cross the street or cross the continents, if needed; a practitioner can access your entire bio information and deliver a personalized medicine, necessary care, right there and then.

Imagine, based on your uniqueness, a practitioner mining through Health (IT) Systems like the intelligent evidence based decision support systems to offer you personalized missing healthy links and other preventative recommendations to prevent diseases in the first place.

On the other hand if intervening to address serious diseases, a practitioner will address the root cause rather than just the symptoms and that too using personalized medicine designed to suit your genomic make up which would not produce adverse side effects.

You could participate in your own healthcare every day.  You could simply log-in to the health information system and perform what if analysis. Make adjustments to diet, lifestyle, and environment to see how it would impact your health, before making the changes. An intelligent decision support system in the health information system guides you and if you agree to make any changes, they become part of your health record.

Practitioners and people will change the way they approach the healthcare.  The system would change from a disease management to a health management system. More emphasis would be on upfront disease prevention and health management.

Healthcare organizations will be rewarded for their performance of keeping assigned population healthy and not just for disease management. I am sure you can think of many other ways how information technology will play a role in our healthcare. We are just beginning. Will it be possible by 2025? What do you think?
