Personalised healthcare can be defined as a customisation of the medical provision that accommodates individual differences in all stages in the process, from prevention, to diagnosis and treatment, to post-treatment follow-up. While the term personalized medicine has a broader meaning, and it comes from the explosion of information arising from genome sequencing, the term personalised healthcare refers more to the potential for customization in the provision of healthcare to the citizen.
