The future of Personalized Medicine - P4 Medicine!


"Predictive, Personalized, Preventive & Participatory"

I listened to an exciting presentation on P4 medicine from Dr.Leroy Hood of Institute of Systems Biology, Seattle at Policy Forum meeting hosted by 23andme at Burlingame, San Francisco on July 14, 2010.

Dr.Hood explained how will P4 medicine will catalyze a revolution from Reactive to Proactive Medicine. He highlighted the general scientific advances that are leading to this revolution - the use of systems approaches to understanding disease, them emergence of transformational technologies and the development of new mathematical and computational tools to analyze, integrate and develop predictive and actionable models of how to deal with disease.

Features of P4 Medicine are:

  • Informational Science
  • Data Driven - each patient will have billions of data points
  • Patients taking more control - from definition of wellnes to assessing treatment for disease
  • Benefits
Lower cost of Healthcare
Transformational nature of healthcare
Global wellness
  • For rich and poor
