Personalization is key to the delivery of wellness care including preventive measures and disease management regimes, where patients take on increased responsibility for
their own health. While personalized care has already taken a giant leap through genomics, it remains a challenge to understand how individual differences play a role in patient adherence and manage recommended changes accordingly.
Practical methods of creating and evaluating personalized
systems have not been fully established. In particular, the role of data-driven analytics in producing actionable insights for practitioners is unclear, and the use of behavioral data has created additional challenges to the understanding of patient adherence for effective care delivery.
The panel will discuss the challenges that face many countries around personalized care from various perspectives. These range from behavioral aspects such as maintaining good practices, cognitive aspects such as how do individuals make decisions in the lights of good evidence, social aspects such as how to engage patients in sustaining adherence behavior, to technological aspects such as how to evaluate individual applicability of data-driven analytics and personalized technological systems.
The panel is expected to contribute to the global community by presenting lessons learned from
existing pilot designs and a collective list of recommendations for pilot design of personalized services at the conclusion of this panel.
