Precision Medicine Readiness Principles Resource Guide: Care integration

Precision medicine offers a more personalized and targeted approach to preventing disease; it considers patients’ unique genetic, biological and environmental factors, as well as their lifestyles, during screening, diagnosis and treatment. However, global leaders often have to pursue precision medicine applications without a consistent and standardized framework that allows them to evaluate their health system’s readiness for the implementation and integration of precision medicine. This report outlines the Platform for Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare’s Precision Medicine Readiness Principles project, which will produce a living document offering benchmarks for those wishing to advance precision medicine in their countries. Through global collaboration, support and education, healthcare systems can continue to integrate precision medicine into routine care for patients.
