The Fusion of Healthcare Delivery and High Tech
When we say precision medicine, what is it that we are going to be precise about, and how does it help both patients and physicians? Tech thinks about users and providers think about patients. How can such differences be harnessed to learn from one another and work together to build and deploy effective precision medicine?
