Preventing the situations that arise and for which the health system must be prepared is a great challenge for which the road is already prepared. The path that leads to precision medicine.
To this end, the Roche Institute Foundation, in collaboration with a multidisciplinary group of experts, promoted the preparation of the Future Health Report and the Precision of Private Medicine. It presents an ideal healthcare scenario of the future, in which Personalized Precision Medicine is fully implemented in the healthcare system.
In the presentation of the report, Federico Plaza, vice president of the Foundation of the Rocha Institute, stated that “Precision personalized medicine is one of the main elements of the transformed health system; it is therefore necessary to continue the effort in its implementation to achieve cutting edge medicine, which guarantees the health of society and health in general and in particular in general” .
Mission objectives in the form of health, research and innovation, and training and acquisition of resources; in which health professionals and citizen participation will play a key role. Also, it will be supported by three elements: the digital transformation, the ethical-legal framework and the health systems, which will contribute to the sustainability of the system.
Health care for the future will leave the current model in terms of care levels. According to Encarna Guillén, coordinator of the Relationship and President of the Spanish Human Genetics Association, “the organization will be a matrix”, which means that all the agents who are involved (health professionals, users and social services) can connect with each other, unlike. the limited real connection that now exists with the organization according to the level of care”.
An attack from three places
The model will be organized in three parts of the action: the Single Care Area, which will have all the points and First Care Care spaces to promote, maintain or restore people’s health and where preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic or rehabilitative; Ubiquitous Health, for the provision of health in any location outside the Unique Health Space and Public Subsidy, aimed at preventing disease, promoting health and reducing health disparities among people.
In these areas, the availability of data and the holistic characterization of people and pathologies will allow better prediction and prevention of diseases, as they are integrated into a complete health history.
In the future, a model of multidisciplinary and networked research will be consolidated, based on collaboration between health professionals and researchers, synergies between public and private institutions and for the promotion of participation and integration of the vision of patients.
The working group proposes the development of a Strategic Plan for Future Health that establishes a shared vision.
The proposed mission method contemplates the establishment of policies for the well-being of health professionals, and the implementation of a new training model for both professionals and users of the health system. “Patients in the next part of the Health Council, Health Councils, Research Commissions and Scientific Editorial Boards, will encourage their participation in health plans,” Guillén confirmed.
Suggestions for moving forward
The report also makes several recommendations. In the high school, the element of ligula. This was confirmed by Fernando Martín-Sánchez, expert supporter of the report and professor of Research in Digital Health at the National School of Health Carlos III, Institute of Health. “It means moving beyond multidisciplinary work, where different disciplines work together, they also require the coordination of different organizations to try to solve a complex problem in a holistic way”, he emphasized.
On the other hand, it is necessary to ensure that the complete health record organizes the implementation of systems that contribute to the homogenization and interpretation of data to facilitate mutual interaction between autonomous communities. As Martín-Sánchez elaborated, it is “a complete electronic record of individual health information that collects clinical, omic and socio-economic and demographic factors for a complete and accurate bio-psycho-social vision of the patient.
Ensure legal and regulatory framework
With the large availability of data, the legal and regulatory context of the future will be based on a system of guarantees secured by the regulatory framework of the European Union’s European Health Data Space.
Experts recommend the establishment of a mechanism that guarantees the protection of citizens’ health. “Patients must be informed about how their data will be used and provide informed consent for its use,” Martin-Sánchez points out.
