Introduction / Introducción

Precision Medicine aims to provide the right treatment for the right patients at the right time and is deeply connected to data science and machine learning. Dialysis patients are highly dependent on technology to live and their treatment generates a huge volume of data. The key idea is to ensure that these data will guide medical decisions based on individual patient characteristics (including biomarkers) rather than on averages over a whole population, which is critical because randomized controlled trials usually exclude kidney diseases patients.
