Personalised medicine is transforming the way disease is prevented, treated and managed across the healthcare spectrum. This has been coupled with an advance in telehealth technology, allowing people living with chronic disease to monitor their own symptoms on portable electronic devices or mobile phones.

In the latest instalment of ERS Vision, ERS President Professor Elisabeth Bel leads the discussion on personalised medicine strategies. Building on topics discussed at the annual ERS Summit held in Brussels in July, the documentary considers whether personalised medicine and telehealth have the power to reduce the burden of chronic diseases and help contribute to the sustainability of healthcare systems.

The very rapid changes in Medical Science and technologies along with the increased use of e-health and the growing involvement of patients will fundamentally change our healthcare model.
