B. Novel tools for prevention and treatment
An increasing use of IT is driving improvements in how medicines and non-pharmacological treatments are being used or applied to help people remain healthy and manage their diseases effectively. For example, the use of apps to provide reminders, collect data and to facilitate dialogue between patients and healthcare professionals is a rapidly expanding aspect of healthcare. Other new technologies are being developed together with new treatment paradigms such as therapeutic vaccines, gene therapy and tissue engineering, and better diagnostic tools. Congress delegates will hear how all these are helping to provide better quality of life to patients through earlier diagnosis and improved outcomes.
