Precision Health and Implementation Science
In this talk, Dr. Sales describes areas of overlap between precision health and implementation, with particular focus on an emerging related approach called “precision implementation”. Possible effects on the organization and delivery of health services are addressed, as well as some challenges in achieving optimal outcomes. Finally, she discussed how learning health systems approaches can bring these two complementary fields together.
