Researchers and leaders from academia, hospitals, government and industry gathered for two days at Stanford Medicine to spark collaborations, address challenges, and identify actionable steps for using large-scale data analysis and technology to improve human health.

By harnessing the vast datasets of biomedical information now available to us, we envision a world in which we can prevent disease before it strikes and cure it decisively if it does.

This is the power of Precision Health.
