 - Overview - 

The Council of the European Union, on 7th December 2015, granted pan-community policy recognition for “personalized medicine for patients”, placing the theme among the EU priorities for the next decades and inviting the Member States and the European Commission to engage in reaching its full potential.

Personalized medicine (or personalised healthcare) aims at facilitating for the right citizen to benefit from the right prevention and treatment tools, at the right time and for the beginning, using the new validated technologies (omics, machine learning) and data (BigData, SmartData), in the context of health systems digital transformation.

This is a paradigm shift from the classical “one size fits all” approach.

Among the therapeutic areas, oncology, haematology and infectious diseases benefit, to a greater extent, from the specific approach to personalized medicine.

Several diagnostic tests, medicines and personalized IT solutions have been approved in the European Union. To reach the full potential of personalised medicine, the health systems need to transform to incorporate innovation throughout the entire healthcare continuum.

Webinar takeaways for the audience:

  • Understanding the concept of personalised medicine (personalised healthcare)
  • Know the main applications of personalised medicine in clinical practice
  • Understanding the role of genomics for personalised medicine
  • Understanding the policy: building blocks for personalised healthcare
  • Preparing for the future: digital twins, digital triplets, humanome

The webinar is presented by Marius Geanta, MD, President and Co-Founder of the Center for Innovation in Medicine.

Dr Geanta is a pioneer in the field of personalised medicine in Romania and Central Eastern Europe and involved in some pan-European innovative healthcare projects.
