Applying Genomic Intelligence and Decision Support at the Point of Care

3:00pm - 4:00pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Galileo 901

Description

Medical information has greatly expanded since 2003, when the human genome was fully sequenced. However, that knowledge expansion has led to very few changes in clinical practice for most physicians. A translational barrier at the “last mile” prevents genomics intelligence from reaching most physicians at the point of care because of information complexity and usability, and workflow integration. With a focus on use cases, this session explores implementing real time genomic decision support, including pharmacogenomics, at the point of care through an EHR.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the challenges of implementing genomics and precision medicine within an electronic health record
  • Appraise the potential of genomics and precision medicine when integrated into normal physician workflow
  • Describe genomics and genomic decision support to improve patient outcomes in behavioral health, cardiology, infectious disease, and pediatrics
  • Evaluate which aspects of germline precision medicine are practical to do today
