Genomics is changing personal healthcare and medicine: the dawn of iPH (individualized preventive healthcare)



Genomics is changing personal healthcare and medicine: the dawn of iPH (individualized preventive healthcare)



Human Genomics 9: 29



This opinion piece focuses on the convergence of information technology (IT) in the form of personal monitors, especially smart phones and possibly also smart watches, individual genomic information and preventive healthcare and medicine. This may benefit each one of us not only individually but also society as a whole through iPH (individualized preventive healthcare). This shift driven by genomic and other technologies may well also change the relationship between patient and physician by empowering the former but giving him/her also much more individual responsibility.
