Powering Precision Health Announces 2019 Summit

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 settembre 2019

Powering Precision Health (PPH), the internationally-acclaimed Summit focused on precision health and the latest in biomarker research, today announced much-anticipated details for its 2019 Summit, which will take place in Barcelona on November 19. Led by precision medicine pioneer, Kevin Hrusovsky, PPH is a non-profit organization with the mission of transforming healthcare from today’s paradigm of scrambling to treat diseases late in their progression to one focused on precision and personalized treatments early in the disease cascade long before symptoms present using cutting-edge biomarker “early and non-invasive detection” technology. Ultimately, the focus will shift to not only precision treatments, but also disease prevention through the biomolecular understanding and avoidance of epigenetic and environmental factors that trigger disease based on exposure to these disease triggers. Once “disease prevention” sciences are established and implemented, individuals will be enabled and empowered to manage their own precision health journey.“Powering Precision Health has become a global movement to transform healthcare by measuring the continuum from health to disease at the molecular structure and individual level using digital biomarkers,” explained Kevin Hrusovsky, PPH Founder. “Our quest here is to rapidly advance technologies and science via collaboration to enable routine biomarker measurements at an individual level to personalize one’s health journey. The ultimate goal is for every individual to routinely know their individual biomarker healthy base line profile and then to see any deviation quickly to enable effective disease treatments and ultimately prevention by avoiding environmental factors that trigger disease. The biomarker technology revolution is in full gear and moving these technologies into the clinic is our overarching goal for the next decade, starting at this PPH meeting in Barcelona.” Hrusovsky will kick-off the event with several luminaries in medicine describing the monumental progress made since our Dec. ’18 PPH Amsterdam meeting in the field of biomarkers. The 2019 Summit is expected to have more than 40 distinguished speakers.

Powering Precision Health Founder to Speak at Future of Health Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 11 aprile 2018

Kevin Hrusovsky, acclaimed thought leader and precision health visionary, will take the stage at PULSE: The Atlantic Summit on Health Care (PULSE) to articulate his vision on transforming our current health care system from managing disease to managing health. “The Potential of Precision Medicine” session will be held Monday, April 9at 2:45 p.m. ET.Hrusovsky, founder of the annual Powering Precision Health Summit, will join leaders from across the country and Boston’s revered medical community at PULSE. In an interview-style discussion with The Atlantic’s senior editor James Hamblin, Hrusovsky will explain that precision medicine is currently being used to treat disease, when in fact, recent technological advancements make it possible to effectively monitor healthy individuals to prevent disease before it even takes hold.
Technology is allowing researchers to see indications of disease in blood – long before symptoms ever appear – with the opportunity to radically shift our health care model. Hrusovsky will detail the areas where the medical community is making progress, such as oncology, neurology, infectious disease, and discuss how measuring protein concentrations at the femtomolar level found in the body, or biomarkers, is not only revolutionizing the way we treat patients today, but will also help enable disease prevention tomorrow.
PULSE brings together top minds shaping health care – medical experts, industry leaders, patients and policymakers – to explore the future of our health care system. The summit takes place April 9 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. ET at the Intercontinental Boston (510 Atlantic Avenue). To register or tune-in to the livestream, visit: https://pulsehealthcare.splashthat.com/.
