The Rationale Behind Precision Medicine

The Rationale Behind Precision Medicine


The era of one-size-fits-all medicine is giving way to treatment based on personal information that provides real evidence of whether a specific product is likely to work for a particular patient. These data may range from genetic information derived from a blood test to clinical trials leveraging novel patient stratification techniques or even consumer behavior distilled from novel big data methods.

This focus on more specific and highly comprehensive information is known as precision medicine and it is the future of healthcare delivery, with an impact on the development and commercialization of biopharmaceutical products that will be seismic. Evidence demanded by regulators and payers is increasing globally, large provider systems are reshaping themselves to bear risk, and perhaps most importantly, consumers are bearing more and more of the costs of treatment. As these trends mount, the ability to convincingly demonstrate value and validate outcomes will separate the winners and losers in the healthcare marketplace.
