A forum to bring the power of Data and AI in Precision Medicine

Ritu Jha-

Artificial intelligence and data analytics (DataAI) are slowly beginning to dominate and influence all industries. by the next decade, these two tools would be changing the way humans interact and communicate with the world. Moreover, the DataAI sector is predicted to play a crucial role in US as well as the global economy.

Hence, to promote the cross-talk between technology and other sectors to foster innovation, American Association for Precision Medicine (AAPM) partnered with several other organizations to host the DataAI National Summit (DANS) and Start-up Showcase/Award Ceremony 2020 in Silicon Valley, California.

Now the 2021 edition is all scheduled to be hosted virtually on 7th and 8th January 2021.

Innovative minds from different sectors will be coming together to understand and empower leaders to leverage new advancements, gain a competitive advantage to reduce time & cost associated with operations and innovations.

This edition will also be focusing on ‘4-P’ of precision medicine – Patients, providers, public health planners (Government), and payers.

The organizers of the event are also looking forward to set the research and development goals for the international precision medicine community.

Talking to indica News, Dr. Prasun Mishra, CEO of AAPM said, “Throughout history, the practice of medicine has been largely reactive. Even today we wait until the onset of disease and then try to cure and treat.”

He noted how some of the diagnosis and treatment of major diseases like cancer, COVID and diabetes are based on assumptions and ineffective.

He said, “Efforts to treat diseases like cancer, COVID, and diabetes are often imprecise, unpredictable, and ineffective. Advances in science have provided a better understanding of genomic and environmental factors responsible for major diseases.”

Dr. Mishra also said, “However, the standard of care is sorely lagging when it comes to applying those factors to shift the emphasis to prevention rather than reaction.  The one-size-fits-all approach is not easing the patient’s suffering and pain. Tailoring health care to each person’s unique genetic make-up is the main principle behind precision medicine.”
