To improve society’s well-being through optimization of healthcare systems is one of the topmost priorities of any government. Today, we have more budget allocation tan ever towards welfare improvement, so it’s imperative to also search for solutions to make it cost-effective.
Therefore, with this document we aim to present evidence and deepen into the convenience of developing the proper technological framework to create the first Spanish Genomic Data Bank. With that, the National Healthcare System can incorporate precision medicine more efficiently, overcoming any technological, ethical and legal barrier.
Approaching the new paradigm of Personalized Medicine is especially relevant nationwide, since it allows focusing effort and resources in the right direction, creating optimal healthcare policies, enabling citizen’s improvements on well-being and raising the cost-efficiency ratio of the healthcare system.
With this review, we highlight the approach to precision medicine not only as a necessary project to ensure health system sustainability, but also as an investment that could grant adaptability towards present and future socio-economic needs.
This project has been co-financed by the European Union's Horizon 2020 program and the CDTI.
