Traditionally, the health care system is designed to respond to problems as they come up in someone. In this, patients and their doctors work hard to respond and sort things out after they’re happening, which can result in a delayed or incorrect diagnosis. But what if we looked at things earlier to improve disease control and prevention? As the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “The right preventive care at every stage of life helps all Americans stay healthy, avoid or delay the onset of disease, keep diseases they already have from becoming worse or debilitating, lead productive lives and reduce costs.”
Proactive genetics redefines and transforms traditional health care because it can offer information about a person’s unique genetic health risk factors earlier. This can give that person and their family health insights and new opportunities, including tailored medical recommendations to help keep them healthy.
