SAP Healthcare has gotten together with Oxford Economics in a survey of 120 healthcare professionals to understand what they’re doing with personalized medicine. You can check out this whitepaper which details the findings of the research or check out the personalized medicine infographic below.

I was most interested in the tools section (near the end) of the infographic below. It’s not surprising that most healthcare professionals say that big data capture and storage tools and predictive analytics tools are essential to personalized medicine. I think that’s a reflection of where we’re at with personalized medicine. We’ll know we’ve entered the next phase of personalized medicine once more organizations want to include collaboration tools and decision support tools in their efforts.

What pieces of this infographic or the research linked above stood out to you?
