Sustainable Health

Our Approach

Our approach is to sustain health by building a network of partnerships with forward-thinking leaders, health systems and companies.

In addition to our original focus on the role of molecular diagnostics, our collaborative partnerships have begun to incorporate behavior as a key component in our ability to sustain health. In light of rapidly aging populations and the increased incidence of lifestyle diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases, behavioral interventions have become a high priority for health systems around the globe.

Our goal to improve health outcomes at lower costs has remained unchanged. To sustain human health, we believe that health systems must shift their current focus from expensive and late-stage disease treatments toward more outcome- and cost-effective early detection and prevention strategies. In addition to our original focus on the role of molecular diagnostics for early detection, we believe that advances in information technologies and data capture devices will transform the efficacy-cost equation for health systems globally.

As a global community, we can build on that shared human experience to validate and implement effective, evidence-based solutions that will sustain health for us, our children and generations to come.

Partnerships
Sustainable Health began as the Partnership for Personalized Medicine, with a strong focus on local, national, and global collaborations.

Diseases
In light of rapidly aging populations, the world has seen an explosive growth in the incidence of lifestyle diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
