A number of industries conduct extensive product testing to ensure safety, reliability and longevity throughout the life cycle of their products. As part of the process, a third party oversees the testing to ensure the product is within industry compliance standards. The product is evaluated and improvements are made based on the results. While we have come to expect utilization of this proactive approach across many sectors, the healthcare industry has not followed suit. Healthcare systems tend to operate on a reactive, “one-size-fits-all” model.
With the use of Precision Health Insight Networks (PHINs), we no longer need to guess how a patient will respond to a specific treatment, but rather can use the right kinds of technologies to help transform health data into the signals that identify risk and drive proactive, personalized care decisions that are precise to fit each patient’s unique needs.
