How Artifical Intelligence Is Advancing Precision Medicine

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have been utilized for years in the field of healthcare and continue to grow tremendously each year with its ability to advance medicine and discoveries in the industry. The term "precision medicine", sometimes referred to as "personalized medicine," is a relatively new term in the healthcare field but the idea has been around for many years in the industry. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, precision medicine is "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." Precision medicine helps physicians determine more personalized treatments for patients considering individualized approaches instead of a blanketed approach for all patients. They do this by looking at a patient's genetic history, location, environmental factors, lifestyle and habits to determine a plan of action for treatment.
