Integrating Genomics Results & EHR Functionality


Mar 13, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT

The availability of genomic data can be a valuable support tool for clinical decision-making. But the process of integrating realtime reanalysis of raw genomic data into an EMR environment can impact real-time performance and run into regulatory restrictions. An effective implementation requires the maintenance of an up-to-date knowledgebase containing current clinical knowledge.


When NorthShore University Health System launched its pharmacogenomics program, it built a solution that solves problems related to real-time reanalysis and updates to the knowledgebase, making it possible for the system to maintain and reanalyze genomic data. The solution involves in-house development leveraging resources at multiple partners including the Broad Institute and the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Gulukota will share NorthShore's solution and review how informatics promises to revolutionize medicine through genomics.

Learning objectives:

Understand the challenges in integration genomic data into an EMR environment

Gain insight into the opportunities for providing reanalysis data in realtime to clinicians
