With many initiatives launched worldwide for the personal human genome map (Personalised Medicine Initiative in the USA, 100.000 Genomes Initiative in the UK and the Human Genome Declaration at EU level), it is possible to envision a future where treatments are tailored to individuals’ genetic structures. A future where Personalised Medicine is fully integrated into real life setting.

In healthcare new scientific and technological innovations are either not yet used or underused because of slow adoption, data analytics is failing to reach its full potential, and interdisciplinary barriers in medical science need to be overcome.

In order to accelerate the adoption of personalised medicine approaches and enable early interception of diseases, deliver new precision and personalised care while balancing and optimising healthcare expenditures based on medical and economic value, Health Technologies and Smart & Integrated Care need to become a key priority for the policy makers. Healthcare organisations need to be transformed in order to absorb innovative technologies and deliver more personalised services to patients and citizens. In this respect, worldwide, the healthcare environment is already changing and it is becoming increasingly obvious that affordable high-quality healthcare cannot be delivered without harnessing new ways of delivering care. Using new technologies is a promising solution to help cope with current challenges and to improve healthcare and pharmacy practice.

Infermedica develops its diagnostic engine to collect intake, check symptoms, and guide patients to the right care. The technology can also detect emergencies and support healthcare professionals by giving them early access to health information and recommendations. Infermedica tackles the problem of inappropriate use of medical services and misdiagnosis, providing insurance companies, hospitals, and health systems with a set of advanced preliminary diagnosis and triage tools, that include products: Symptom Checker, Call Center Triage, Emergency Room Triage, and Medical API. The company uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to assess symptoms and find patterns in data.

Thanks to algorithms, Infermedica gets smarter over time. Besides, the team of physicians verifies every piece of information that is added to the medical database to ensure that patients get safe and reliable recommendations. To date, physicians involved in the project have spent over 20,000 hours doing the review.
