In the final episode of the series, we examine the international perspectives of personalised care. 

We will discuss approaches to personalised and precision medicine from two of the largest healthcare economies in the world; the USA and China.

We will explore how big data-driven research is able to provide the evidence needed for precision healthcare decision-making in the USA, and how the health tech industry in China differs from the NHS in rising to the challenge of personalised medicine.
