Session ID: 

Implementing Genomics in EHRs - Present and Future

11:30am - 12:30pm Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Through the implementation of personalized medicine, genomics is changing the way healthcare is delivered, and it has the potential to improve the health of individuals across the globe. To achieve this outcome, there is a requirement to exchange and integrate data from both the EHR and external knowledge bases to inform pathways of care. This requires collaboration between standards organizations across the healthcare domain and throughout the genomics community. To enable this vision, standards are required for both clinical and research information and those standards must support the seamless exchange and utilisation of that information. The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), HL7 and SNOMED International are working together to provide such alignment of standards.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explore the current challenges facing the development of genomics, and the impacts on EHRs
  • Describe the joint working of standards bodies within the realm of genomics and clinical practice
  • Assess the work currently underway to address the challenges of bringing together clinical EHR data and genomics research
  • Evaluate the effect of current developments related to genomics on the future ways of working within EHRs
