A Proposed Pharmacogenetic Solution for IT-Based Health Care

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 10)


Health care is a vast domain and has a large-scale effect on population. It has been facing critical issues of safety, quality, and high costs. Technical innovations in health care since the last decade have led to emergence of various computational, storage and analysis tools and techniques which are high quality, easily accessible, and cost-effective. In this paper, we have summarized the emerging trends of IT in medical domain. Further, we have proposed a pharmacogenetic solution for health care which can act as an aid to customized medicine.
