What is Personalized Medicine?
Personalized medicine is the science of customizing health care to the individual. This fascinating and rapidly expanding branch of medicine seeks to identify and understand the unique differences between individuals so the most specific and appropriate health care decisions for each person can be made.
Instead of treating all patients the same, the goal of personalized medicine is to treat each patient like the one in a million that they are. This means focusing the world's collective evidence-based knowledge on each individual patient to help produce the best possible outcome. Many doctors and researchers believe personalized medicine is the future of health care.
