Community of Practice
Mark Merolli, University of Melbourne
The Precision Health Community of Practice welcomes new members who are interested in advancing the emerging field of Precision Health in an increasingly digitally-enabled society. We want to promote Precision Health to the digital health community with a focus on new initiatives both across Australasia and internationally and the challenges these raise so that we can support its introduction into our health system.

What is the definition of Precision Health?
Precision Health seeks and analyses a wide range of information, such as clinical observations, biomarkers (including genomics) and patient generated data. It triangulates this information within the context of lifestyle, behaviour, environment and medical history to inform and personalise prevention, diagnosis and treatment at an individual, patient cohort and population level.
As an evolving field, Precision Health will adapt and transform over time by incorporating innovation and discovery, resulting in improved individual health and well-being.
Communities of Practice are open to all Members and Fellows of the Institute.
