Healthcare Informatics: The path to precision care


At a glance

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies will bring data together to make precision medicine possible.
  • Precision care can enable more focus to be placed on the prevention of disease.
  • Patients will have more involvement and choice in their own care pathways.

Precision medicine will enable a patient’s treatment pathway to be tailored to their individual characteristics. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, clinicians will be able to examine and interrogate only the most relevant data for each patient, enabling individualized treatments and first-time-right diagnosis.

These healthcare IT leaders discuss how new approaches to the prevention of disease will improve the patient journey.

Dr. Ronnie Ptasznik speaks on how precision diagnosis will deliver a personalized
algorithm for each patient

It’s not going to be enough to look at disease that’s present in the body. We’re going to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to see characteristics in the image that the human eye may not be able to see.”
