The practice of medicine stands at the threshold of a transformation from its current focus on the treatment of disease events to an emphasis on enhancing health, preventing disease and personalizing care to meet each individual's specific health needs. Personalized health care is a new and strategic approach that is driven by personalized health planning empowered by personalized medicine tools, which are facilitated by advances in science and technology. These tools improve the capability to… 
Personalized Health Care as a Pathway for the Adoption of Genomic Medicine
The PHC model of care will serve as a market for emerging predictive and personalized technologies to foster genomic medicine and provide a framework for the adoption of genomic technologies as they are validated.

Improvements the ACA has made by expanding coverage may not result in better health until significant progress is made in value-based reimbursement, and reimbursement reform is needed to achieve this.
Personalized medicine: challenges and opportunities for translational bioinformatics.
Barriers to implementing genomics applications and current progress toward overcoming barriers are discussed, lessons learned from early experiences of institutions engaged in personalized medicine are described, and example areas for translational bioinformatics research inquiry are provided.
Opportunities and Challenges for the Future of Personalized Oral Healthcare
The dental profession will transition to one that is more focused on disease prevention, risk assessment, and early diagnosis as the predictive biomarkers that assist in the diagnosis of and treatment of common diseases are discovered and deployed chairside.

Preparing the Next Generation of Oral Healthcare Professionals for a Personalized Oral Healthcare Environment
Dental schools must consider developing career paths and new work force models that will accelerate the development of a prospective oral healthcare environment, increase access to care, and insure that dentistry maintains its leadership role in fostering optimal oral health.
Patient engagement as a risk factor in personalized health care: a systematic review of the literature on chronic disease
This review suggests patient engagement should be quantified as part of a comprehensive health risk appraisal given its apparent value in helping individuals to effectively self-manage chronic disease.

The conceptual foundations for PM and personalized healthcare are reviewed, and their evolution through scientific publications where a clear definition and the features of the different formulations are identifiable are identifiable.


Prospective Medicine: The Next Health Care Transformation
It is stressed that all interested parties, including academic health centers, insurers, and payers, will need to work together to develop innovative applications of new technologies and appropriate delivery models to fulfill the promise of being the best cost-effective model to improve the nation’s health.
Improving health by taking it personally.
Prospective care, a strategic approach that combines personalized health planning with integrated care services to focus on individualized health promotion, disease prevention, monitoring, and early intervention, is proposed.
Proposal for a new health record to support personalized, predictive, preventative and participatory medicine.
A prospective health record should be developed to enable personalized and preventative strategies, including assessment of health risks, evaluation of current health status, tracking of disease pathogenesis, prediction of disease events and long-term planning for maintaining wellness and limiting disease.
