Abstract

There is an open controversy in the use of the terms personalised and precision medicine and what they refer to in different contexts. In the present work we have considered the data types managed by each of them rather than their application and we have been able to identify commonalities but also differences in the types of data addressed in both approaches that would ultimately lead to include, from a data perspective, personalised medicine within the broader precision medicine term.
