    The International Consortium for Personalised Medicine (ICPerMed) published a “Vision Paper” on how the use of personalised medicine approaches will promote “next-generation” medicine in 2030.

    The vision entails that medicine needs to become more firmly centred on the individual’s personal characteristics and at the same time be more effective and have an economic value. Next-generation medicine should also provide equitable access for all citizens to the best possible healthcare in the future.

    The  ICPerMed  vision  relies  on  four  critical  pillars: 

    • data  and  technology
    • intersectoral  synergies
    • healthcare system reforms
    • education and  literacy,

    each of which is essential for implementation of personalised medicine in 2030.
