Implementing PGx in Practice: It Takes More Than Genes

10:45am - 11:45am Friday, March 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W300

Description

Dr. Donald Levick and Shannon Fenstermacher, PharmD, will present an overview of the work being done at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) on targeted clinical decision support and pharmacogenomics. They will review LVHN's participation in a national pharmacogenomics pilot with the ONC; and the collaboration with a vendor to develop the content and workflows associated with implementation of drug-gene pair decision support, including the interface of discrete genomic data into the EMR. They will discuss the implementation of specific medication alerts that provide context sensitive information to the ordering provider to ensure the most efficient and accurate decisions are made. The discussion will include a review of the change management and cultural issues associated with implementation of such advanced CDS, and the strategy and tactics utilized to build interest and acceptance of the providers.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how to integrate discrete genomic data from a laboratory source system into an EHR to support point-of-care clinical decision support
  • Describe how discrete genomic data is used to support targeted medication warnings
  • Illustrate how to choose drug/gene pairs that are appropriate for targeted medication warnings/clinical decision support
  • Discuss how a change management approach made it possible to implement pharmacogenomics at the point of care
  • Explain why the success of a pharmacogenomics or targeted medication warning program is tied to a governance program that nurtures multi-disciplinary support and engagement
