What is Precision Health?
Precision Health is a population-based strategy that uses advanced tools and technology to discover how genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors influence a population’s health. Moving beyond the traditional practice of medicine, Precision Health is a research, education, and service initiative that uses big data, computational science, genetics, biology, and social factors to better understand and prevent disease, promote wellness, and develop better treatment options that allow patients to improve their health and wellness.
