S1.Ep5: Why We Need to Be Active Participants in Personalised Health to Maximise Its Benefits

The biggest investment in your lifetime isn't financial. It's behavioural.  Our current approach to healthcare is unsustainable, partly because people are largely detached from decision-making. We tend to receive prescribed solutions that we don't have a hand in creating.  To deliver the right interventions, to the right people, at the right time, we not only have to understand our unique health needs and options— we have to be willing to become our own force for change.  So what steps will you need to take to maximise the benefits of personalised health in your future? In this episode, host Tony Estrella and guest experts Janice Chia and Kaakpema "KP" Yelpaala explore what individuals and health systems can do to empower people to become participants in their health, rather than simply "patients."  The goal? To have more good health years than bad health years.

S1.Ep4: How Personalised Health Can Unleash the Power of Transformative Clinicians

Transformative clinicians— clinicians who develop and deliver healthcare in innovative ways— can be found throughout medical history. They have been key to nearly every advancement we've made in helping people live longer, healthier lives, and they will be just as crucial to delivering on the promise of personalised health, too.  But it's not always easy to be a pioneer. There are a number of barriers that can discourage clinicians from prescribing new therapies or diagnostic tools, pursuing novel drug research, or trying a new approach to care.  In this episode, host Tony Estrella and guest experts Dr. Rhoda Au and Dr. Nares Damrongchai explore three of these barriers and offer insights into how health systems can enable more clinicians to embrace the innovation that will come from personalised health. They also discuss success stories from around the world that showcase how transformative clinicians are already changing the face of health.

S1.Ep3: The Data Challenge of Personalised Health

In today's world of smart devices and social media, we share a lot of data-- about our preferences, habits, locations, and much more-- to enhance the quality and convenience of our lives. Data is also key to delivering the benefits of personalised health. But where do we draw the line between privacy and utility? What challenges do health systems face in collecting, sharing, and using data cost-effectively, securely, and ethically?  In this episode, host Tony Estrella and guest experts Dale Sanders and Dr. Joanne Hackett discuss the barriers to data sharing and the thorny questions policymakers have to answer to design strong data governance policies. Plus, they discuss lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as successful models that can serve as a blueprint for health systems around the world.

S1.Ep2: Can We Merge Personalised Health with Public Health?

A coordinated approach to public health has improved the lives of billions of people since the late 1800s. By identifying population-level health challenges, improving sick care and infrastructure, and scaling up interventions that work, public health has raised the quality of life and extended how long people live. But public health is far from perfect. Diseases like cholera, diabetes, and COVID-19 still impact billions of people around the world.  In this episode, we look at the impact personalisation brings to public health. Are they compatible? Can personalised health be affordable and accessible to all populations, not only the wealthy? These are critical questions which impact the future of health. Personalised public health promises to improve global outcomes by using data and technology to target interventions to populations. Host Tony Estrella and experts Dr. Jeremy Lim and Dr. John Sargent discuss the policy challenges to achieving personalised public health, as well as examples from around the world where this approach is already becoming reality.

S1.Ep1: The promise of Personalised Health: Is this the Future of Healthcare?

Imagine a world in which advanced medical treatments and technologies are the new standard, available to everyone regardless of geography or socioeconomic status. Individuals now survive metastatic cancer instead of fearing the disease. And you have a  complete profile of your specific health needs, so your clinical team can prevent sickness from occurring in the first place.  This is the promise of personalised health – and it is the future.  So how do we get there? Host Tony Estrella and health policy experts Dr. Rifat Atun and Professor Tikki Pangestu explore the progress we've made – and the barriers we have to overcome.  Tune in to learn how to move away from our current, one-size-fits-all model of care to a more equitable, sustainable, and healthier future.
