Pushing P4

Good policy has to be guided by good science and a systems-driven medicine that is predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory (P4). Marginal changes to evidence-based medicine (e.g., computerizing data collection) will themselves have only marginal effects on improving healthcare and reducing its costs.

Personalized medicine: Time for one-person trials

Precision medicine requires a different type of clinical trial that focuses on individual, not average, responses to therapy, says Nicholas J. Schork. (Nature)

"Surviving Terminal Cancer" premieres at Lincoln Center

This documentary presents compelling evidence from doctors, regulators, and other patients that raises concern over the validity and ethical grounding of oncology research, and the resulting limitations to clinical practice. Is it possible that as a society we could make dramatic progress against cancer if we reconsidered our strategy, as opposed to blindly following a system that has failed to deliver meaningful results for over four decades?

Colin Hill attends President Obama's Precision Medicine Summit

"Precision medicine transcends the one-size-fits-all approach to get the right treatment to each individual patient the first time, and is transforming medicine and population health management. The result is a smarter, more impactful, and more efficient healthcare system,” says Colin Hill, GNS CEO and co-founder, and Transforming Medicine director and co-founder. (GNS Healthcare)

The newest new thing: Obama's precision medicine initiative

“Delivering on precision medicine’s promise is the culmination of many previous technological and policy efforts”, noted Colin Hill, co-founder and CEO of GNS Healthcare, a company specializing in precision analytics. (Modern Healthcare)
