[Comment] Precision medicine to precision care: managing multimorbidity

The gap between traditional disease-focused medicine and patients’ needs is growing as the burden of multimorbidity increases.1 This mismatch, which stems from both successes (eg, increasing life expectancy and advances in biomedicine) and failures (eg, underinvestment in prevention and focus on managing discrete disease rather than what matters to each patient), results in fragmented care, suboptimal health outcomes, and avoidable harms for patients with multiple chronic conditions. Although multimorbidity is common among older adults (aged ≥65 years), it is also common in younger populations.
