e-Estonia podcast: “From citizen-centric to personalised healthcare: the power of genomics”

Article content

Our latest podcast tackles a timely and groundbreaking topic of personalised medicine with Piret Hirv, the manager of the Connected Health Cluster. Piret, with her background as a trained nurse and experience in the Ministry of Social Affairs, brings valuable insights into the importance of private and public partnerships, the future of behavioural health, and the current status of personalised medical services in Estonia. The podcast started with a pretty bleak note by shedding light on the challenges faced by the healthcare system due to an ageing population and limited resources. However, the conversation quickly turned towards an optimistic vision for the future, emphasising the potential of innovation to provide healthcare to more people with fewer resources.
