Ferryman, Kadija; Pitcan, Mikaela

Fairness in Precision Medicine is the first report to deeply examine the potential for biased and discriminatory outcomes in the emerging field of “precision medicine,” or “the effort to collect, integrate, and analyze multiple sources of data in order to develop individualized insights about health and disease.” Supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the report is the first in a new series of research projects at Data & Society focused on the future of health data.
