Department of Biostatistics 2020 Fall Seminars Presents: Michael Kosorok, PhD University of North Carolina Abstract: Precision health is the science of data-driven decision support for improving health at the individual and population levels. This includes precision medicine and precision public health and circumscribes all health-related challenges which can benefit from a precision operations approach. This framework strives to develop study design, data collection and analysis tools to discover empirically valid solutions to optimize outcomes in both the short and long term. This includes incorporating and addressing heterogeneity across persons, time, location, institutions, communities, key stakeholders, and other contexts. In this presentation, we review some recent developments in this area, imagine what the future of precision health can look like, and outline a possible path to achieving it. Several applications in a number of disease areas will be examined.
