About Personalized Health Care and P4 Medicine

Personalized health care at The Ohio State University is envisioned as health care that will utilize gene-based information to understand each person’s individual requirements for the maintenance of his or her health, prevention of disease, and therapy tailored to their genetic uniqueness. Ideally, it also includes incorporating knowledge of their environment, health-related behaviors, culture and values. Thus, personalized health care promises to be predictive preventive, personalized and participatory. We call it P4 Medicine.
