Precision Medicine is an emerging, evolving field whereby increasing amounts of different types of information are used to shape prevention, prediction, diagnosis and treatment at population, patient group and individual level. It is the way of the future.
In response to this, HISA has established a Precision Medicine Community of Practice to engage, inform and influence the HISA community and the broader health ecosystem on this important area. We want to ensure that the informatics community understands what Precision Medicine is, the initiatives internationally and here in Australia, ongoing developments in this field and the challenges it raises so that we can support its introduction into our health system. This will make us better positioned to ensure that data/information requirements and standards are understood and in place and technology solutions evolve to support the increasing use of Precision Medicine.
