The main objective of the PERSONALIZED MEDICINE SERVICE FOR PRIMARY CARE COMMUNITY CENTER (PEMS-PC3) project is to design, deploy and verify the clinical efficacy and economic impact of care pathways created for the selected diseases: COPD, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. These “care pathways” will consist of a set of programs based on a personalized medicine model, in which primary care centers and community centers get coordinated to give support and follow-up to patients who use them with the aim of covering the selected diseases’ health care needs of the population.

This project will design, implement and deploy a personalized service that can be tested in a community center in China. This pilot service will include the following elements / activities: service platform; shared medical history; patient registration; personalized health care plans; clinical and economic validation.

Expected impact
The implementation of PEMS-PC3 aims to obtain the following results:
· Provide information to managers and policy makers about the health profile of its inhabitants to improve the planning of future health services.
· Encourage citizens to achieve a healthier lifestyle thanks to therapies for reducing tobacco dependence, improving daily physical activity and nutritional habits.
· Promote early detection and a more accurate diagnosis of COPD, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, which will allow an earlier management.
