The value of health: the 4 P paradigm and the future of healthcare

 13th October 2017




Healthcare is evolving from reactive disease care to care that is predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory (the so called 4P medicine paradigm). Systems biology and medicine, omics data and the digital revolution are now beginning to provide patients, consumers and physicians with personalized information about each individual’s unique health experience of both health and disease at the molecular, cellular and organ levels.

This approach will allow to personalize care to each person’s unique biology, treating the causes rather than the symptoms of diseases and making their care much more cost effective. In this scenario, consumers and patients will be able to improve their health through the opportunities given by the digital revolution, i.e. the observation of the impact of lifestyle decisions, the assessment of wellness and disease from wearable devices, POC, smart tools, the creation of patient-driven social networks focusin on optimizing wellness or dealing with disease.

All those themes will be discussed in the conference from different perspectives by relevant representatives coming from the healthcare, research and business life sciences sector.

Participation is free of charge, but the registration is mandatory using the registration form available here

Language : Italian - Simultaneus translation will be offer: english-italian and italian-english for foreign guests
