Precision or personalized medicine is a novel approach that considers a person’s genetics, lifestyle, and environment to determine the best course of treatment and prevention.
The short-term goal of precision medicine is to integrate and expand in oncology: understand genetic markers and find novel, more effective treatments. The long-term goal of precision medicine is to improve therapeutic tools in other fields of medicine. “Big health data” is the immense data generated from patient health records, diagnosis, treatments, genomic sequencing, medical research, smart devices, wearable, and various other sources.
