There is a lot of interest in promoting precision health. Big data are offering an opportunity for fresh approaches to generating and interpreting evidence in the setting of precision health. The lecture will argue that the personalization that is inherent in precision health is entirely within the remit and standards of evidence-based medicine. Both precision health and big data will be assessed through the viewpoint of evidence-based medicine, to try to understand their strengths and limitations and to understand how they can eventually offer useful information. 

The IHPI Research Seminar Series is a lecture-based program designed to share innovative health services research topics, studies, and programs, with clinicians, faculty, research staff, and students from a variety of disciplines.
