Innovative Ways to Promote Personal Health
New and innovative strategies instituted at Ohio State University can help promote personal health. Included in this is P4 medicine, which is predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory, which allows for people to take a proactive role in their health, rather than waiting until they are sick. The approach can help reduce the cost of health care as well as improve outcomes.
Personalized healthcare focuses on health rather than disease.
