A Vision For The Future
Since the beginning of modern medicine, disease treatment has always been in the hands of physicians who have the skill and understanding to diagnose and facilitate healing. Over the past century the growth of a population with critical needs for immediate disease diagnosis and care has become so big that being able to deliver effective diagnostic care and treatment has become much more difficult and complex. Moreover, sophisticated medical technologies that promise to advance modern medicine are unable to reach less developed countries where technological advancement is needed the most. For those that are able to seek diagnostic treatment, issues of assay turn-around time and cost often mean that actionable results arrive either when a disease state has significantly advanced or the cost of running the diagnostic and prescribing treatment no longer is affordable even with insurance and public safety nets.
