GNS Precision Medicine ConferenceThe topic of artificial intelligence (AI) and how it is driving precision medicine in healthcare was the focus of the inaugural GNS Precision Medicine Industry Forum which took place May 18th in Cambridge. More than 50 attendees representing biopharma, health plans and foundations joined forces with industry leaders to discuss how AI is propelling precision medicine to improve drug discovery and development, enhance health outcomes and help the industry address the challenges of value-based care.

“We are on the precipice of making precision medicine a reality because we now have the capability to discove novel insights at scale with AI,” said Colin Hill, Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder of GNS Healthcare. “Our forum brought together some of the most innovative biopharma companies and thought leaders to discuss how to drive success in all phases of drug development, from discovery to clinical trials to commercialization. It is also unique in its ability to offer the payer perspective and drive the conversation around value-based strategies.”
