precisionlife tools provide a unique personalized view of the relationships between foods, diseases and drugs for each individual:
Food plays a huge role in people’s health – from avoiding obesity and chronic ‘lifestyle’ diseases such as diabetes, to enhanced risks for cancers and dementia.
At the same time, drug:food interactions are responsible for many of the avoidable adverse drug reactions which can lead to non-compliance and even hospitalization, especially for multimorbid patients and those on polypharmaceutical regimens. Poor nutrition hampers the recovery of patients in hospital and costs the health and social care sector billions of dollars. Getting better nutrition is reckoned to be the third most significant impact on cost of care and outcome by NICE.
In spite of constant reinforcement, over 70% of UK adults still eat fewer than five portions of fruit & vegetables a day, and the continuous reinforcement of generic ‘5-a-day’ advice often leads to many people switching off and ignoring the message. Yet people are interested – the health food industry is set to top $1 trillion dollars in 2017 (Euromonitor), and a variety of major tech players, notably Amazon, have been very active in the space.
There is a huge role for food brands, retailers and food service providers to enable healthier food choices tailored to an individual’s own personal needs and risks. The challenge is how to personalize advice to every user, regardless of the complexity of their circumstances, without having to see and manage a patient’s personal medical information.
