The concept of P4 medicine is central to OA foundation and focus, as we embrace the following principles of this theory: Prediction, Prevention, Participation, Personalization.
Five main value drivers for OA innovators are:
Data-driven approach Integration of data from different sources leveraging on interoperable datasets to fuel advanced and scientific validated analysis.
