Abstract

Technological advancements and enormous achievements in the biomedical field are presented daily. Still, everyday clinical environment lacks major breakthroughs often because of individual set-up of patients making them unique when it comes to management and treatment. A truly individual approach might therefore, transform quality of health-care and effectiveness of medicine. Implementation of such individualized medicine requires new global technologies and methods as well as a holistic view to a patient. In this paper, we discuss and present the personalized and integrative medicine paradigms as major drivers of radical changes in the system of health care that may solve some major issues that medicine faces today, i.e. globalization, new and fast growing infectious diseases, changes in behavior patterns of disease and aging population. Policy makers, health-authorities and public bodies are encouraged to enter this cross-sectorial debate and facilitate the public dialogue on such medical concept value and conditions for its success.
