Precision Medicine in Psychiatry
The future of medicine is personalized, preventive and participatory. The patient and family are at the center of their health care decisions, and incorporating the latest diagnostic and therapeutic advances is crucial. In collaboration with the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, the Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine is focused on developing better diagnostics and therapeutics for psychiatric and related disorders using a precision health initiative. By looking at all aspects of an individual, including their environment and lifestyle, precision medicine experts can better diagnose and treat patients.
