Insights from Mike Modic on expanding precision medicine

“This would mean to effectively take healthcare into this particular millennium.” – Mike Modic

  • Assuming that today’s healthcare system is irreparably broken, changing and improving the existing system might not bring the expected solution. A new start would therefore be more effective.
  • This new start for the healthcare system could be achieved by combining and adapting approaches from different industries, such as manufacturing and retail.
  • The cause of the current situation in healthcare is the state of electronic medical records worldwide, which in turn is the product of disconnected data systems. Linking fragmented digital sources can create a more cohesive picture of the patient and make it possible to deliver care much more effectively.
  • The overall goal should be to achieve vastly improved care for the population in a modern, interdisciplinary, and effective way.
