What is precision health?

Precision health means learning from all available data in order to offer the best health advice to each person. Our health is known to be related to a wide variety of factors, including prior conditions, genetic factors, social circumstances and activity. As more data related to these are captured in electronic health records, devices, and activity profiles, we can learn from this in order to identify risks and match recommendations to suit each circumstance. We believe that developing tools that give people the knowledge to better manage their health is good for individuals, whanau (family and community), health providers and organisations who pay for our healthcare.
