Precision Medicine Spend to Reach $132.3 Billion

Precision Medicine uses molecular info to extract the optimum medical method from diagnostic protocols, by merging the impact of environmental and genetic factors. Data access is essential, with genetic metabolic and clinical data used to build a fuller picture of a patient's biology.

Moreover, the primary aim of precision medicine is to design and optimize a pathway for diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and prognosis, using large biological datasets.

Personalized, evidence-based medicine uses stored health data, which includes patient diagnosis, laboratory work, insurance claims, and demographic information. The results enable healthcare providers to predict and prevent some illnesses.

Precision Medicine Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, the total investment in precision medicine will reach $132.3 billion globally by 2027 -- that's increasing from only $35.7 billion in 2022.

The significant market growth of 270 percent is a result of emerging technologies and infrastructure -- such as artificial intelligence (AI) -- which aids precision medicine by predicting risks for certain diseases.

These technological advancements, combined with the healthcare sector’s need to increase efficiencies in the face of a potential economic downturn, will encourage healthcare providers to invest further in precision medicine.

According to the Juniper assessment, precision medicine leverages advances in personal genomics to enable healthcare providers to prepare preventative plans and disease treatments based on gene variability.

Reductions in adverse reactions from ineffective medication, improving the efficacy of treatment plans via personalization, and cutting patient spending on medication, will be the primary drivers of precision medicine adoption among healthcare providers.

To maximize these medical benefits, Juniper analysts identified the use of AI to ingest and process large amounts of healthcare data to increase the future accuracy of medical diagnoses.

"The rapid increase in accuracy, as systems become more advanced, will create a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement; catalyzing further growth and adoption of precision medicine in healthcare sectors over the next 5 years," said Cara Malone, research analyst at Juniper Research.

The latest research finding identified that the most significant public policy issue surrounding precision medicine will likely arise from patient data privacy concerns. In particular, if and when a person's genetic data is stored and shared without permission.

In many countries, but predominantly in the U.S. market, there is suspicion that uncovering genetic predispositions using precision medicine could lead to medical insurance providers leveraging these insights to increase healthcare premiums.

Outlook for Regional Growth of Precision Medicine

To allay these concerns, all medical technology vendors must consider voluntarily adopting strong codes of conduct around data privacy, as well as creating independent advisory councils, to reassure people and limit the scope of data sharing.

That said, I believe personal genetic data privacy will become of paramount importance across the globe, as more national and international government bodies create medical data governance policies that regulate this emerging sector of the Global Networked Economy.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve. "HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner . HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Top 10 CFO Priorities Require Rethinking Finance

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) role is essential to digital business growth. While CFOs do not get closely involved in the tactical details of the digital transformation of their functions, they still recognize its strategic importance. According to the latest survey by Gartner, CFOs are faced with the challenge of balancing the need for substantive digital business innovation with financial cost control and risk management. "CFOs will be stretched thinly across many activities in 2023. The survey revealed a wide range of actions CFOs plan to either lead or be significantly involved with," said Marko Horvat, vice president at Gartner. Survey Findings: The Top Ten Priorities Cost Optimization - Cost reduction remains the top priority for CFOs as they look for ways to cut costs and improve efficiency in their operations. This includes identifying cost-saving opportunities through automation, outsourcing, and business process improvement. Business Continuity - The global C
