Chronic health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and kidney disease account for more than 75% of the nation's $2.7 trillion in annual spending for medical care. 80% of their onset can be avoided if individual biomarker-guided targeted early prevention is implemented. However current risk stratification and prediction tools used by healthcare industry today only capture about less than 25% high-cost patients at the very late full-blown stage of a disease. That is why current care or disease management programs failed to bend the cost curve, and HC cost still grows at an unsustainable speed.

Genetic risk biomarker integrated modeling can improve accurate risk estimation & prediction and will optimize intervention at the right time with the right patients and can achieve maximum ROI.

Precision medicine will revolutionize HC from sick care to prevention and health preservation.What is needed and how these discoveries will be used to speed up this transformation and consequent cost saving from these potentially reduced chronic diseases will be explored.
