Precision Driven Health (PDH) is a seven-year NZ$38m research partnership aimed at improving health outcomes through data science. The partnership centres around the international movement towards precision medicine, the growing body of international research that is identifying and enabling the capture and analysis of the big data that will facilitate healthcare to be tailored to the individual.
The NZ Innovation Awards are intended to give “smart, innovative NZ individuals and businesses a platform to be recognised and celebrated”. PDH has been named as a finalist in the Health & Science category – where innovators whose products, services or research are focused on developing innovation to solve problems or make improvements in human health, animal health, bioscience, medical research, general science, and molecular research. Evaluators are looking for innovations that are based on new technology or new ways of applying technology, science development or commercialisation of products or services.
