The conference summary is here:
     Precision Medicine has come a long way in the last 10+ years thanks to advances in diagnostics, computing, and consumer tools. The ongoing quest to better understand disease predisposition and prevention through genomic and environmental factors is key to increasing the quality and length of life. Technology for Precision Health will explore how technology can help.
     How can we think differently about gathering, analyzing and sharing information? Which incentives can be offered to structurally change the system toward longer term care of patients? Which mechanisms will empower patients with their data and create virtuous partnerships with providers to truly drive value? Conference delegates will learn about the latest tools in Precision Medicine and Health as well as be part of the discussion on new ontologies and policy changes needed to bring these technologies to patients.
