Healthcare is getting more personal and effective with precision medicine

If your computer isn’t working right, what do you do? You might turn it off and on again, or run a virus check. If all fails, maybe you’ll try a system restore. Whatever your path, the method is trial-and-error; you’re trying one thing after another until something works.

The medical community often takes the same trial-and-error approach. For any given problem, a doctor will try the most likely treatment first. Maybe this drug will help. If it doesn’t, maybe try another drug; maybe adjust your diet and habits. As a last resort, there’s always surgery.

Update #2 – Looking to the great white north

In June, I spoke with Dr. Chris Jaeger, Chief Medical Information Officer and Vice President of Medical Informatics at Sutter Health, about his work with Orion Health in the area of population health management. In short, I left the interview very intrigued by his repeated reference to Orion Health’s global reach and experience. In particular, I found it interesting when he stated that his team’s visit to Alberta Health was “tremendously important” in terms of Sutter Health learning practical and proven methods of effectively managing a wide health population.
