Preci­sion Medi­cine and Systems Biology

Preci­sion medi­cine aims to inte­grate the indi­vid­ual patient situ­a­tion and reli­able medical knowl­edge in equal measure in clin­i­cal decision-making. Digi­tized care process­es and valid clin­i­cal deci­sion support systems can only form a stable basis for sustain­able imple­men­ta­tion in prac­tice if they work togeth­er. Increas­ing­ly, systemic biolog­i­cal models are being used for decision-making instead of soli­tary biomark­ers. The partic­i­pa­to­ry inclu­sion of the patient’s will in the decision-making process as well as a contin­u­ous­ly updat­ed evidence assess­ment are further chal­lenges here.

Contri­bu­tions to this topic area can come from the follow­ing areas, for example:

  • Trans­la­tion from science to Stan­dard Care
  • Trans­la­tion of systems biol­o­gy models into clin­i­cal deci­sion support.
  • Digi­ti­za­tion of tumor boards
  • Partic­i­pa­tion of patients in deci­sion making
  • Inte­gra­tion of qual­i­ty of life as a deci­sion indi­ca­tor in the course of chron­ic diseases
  • Contri­bu­tion of indi­vid­ual trajec­to­ries to the evidence of medical knowledge.
  • Qual­i­ty manage­ment in clin­i­cal decision-making processes
