P4 Medicine will improve global health outcomes

P4 Medicine started simply enough as a plan for technology to improve the quality of human life. P4 Medicine is a term coined by biologist Leroy Hood, stands for “Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, and Participatory Medicine.” It predates Romney Care and Obamacare and emphasizes that one size does not fit all or even most. The need to deliver higher quality healthcare and control cost are the main impetuous for switching healthcare approaches to be  more personalized. It is becoming an ever clearer vision that medical practices in the US will be revolutionized by biotechnology, managing a person’s health, instead of manage a patient’s disease. Therefore, we must be active participants in our own health.
