E DISTINCTLY REMEMBER THE MOMENT THAT SCIENTISTS CLAIMED
Wvictory against all nature of future disease after the human genome had successfully been decoded. However, over
the ensuing decade-plus, it has become clear that our health is
not quite that deterministic. Clinicians must weigh not just a
string of nucleotides when making decisions about our care, but
must also incorporate a growing set of health data that is
generated and controlled by patients. Incorporating this data
into health care to enable better decisions is at the heart of this
report. The benefits of using predictive analytics are the same
as many categories of digital health: better care and lower costs.
The difference is that the path to realizing these benefits—
through personalized care—is only possible by implementing
these technologies. The concern that care will be reduced to a
set of algorithmically-derived probabilities is important and
real. But the promise is as well.
