The personalised medicine technology landscape

Integrating technologies for personalised medicine effectively into the NHS


This report by PHG Foundation for NHS England, The personalised medicine technology landscape presents an independent evidence synthesis to inform the NHS as it continues to develop its approaches and policies to support the delivery of increasingly personalised medicine, through the implementation of advanced medical technologies.

The report looks at the healthcare applications of a range of genomic and ‘omics technologies, from pharmacogenomics to liquid biopsy and transcriptomics - and goes further,  to evaluate the prospects for a host of other technologies with the potential to personalise healthcare, from advanced image analysis and wearables to 3D printing and regenerative medicine.

This evidence synthesis by the respected policy analysts at the PHG Foundation provides important insights as to how to take this vision forward and the issues we will face in implementation.
