Technology to Enable the Clinical Genomics Revolution in Australia

8:30am - 9:30am Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W314B

Description

Clinical genomics has the potential to fundamentally change patient care. However, implementing genomics into standard clinical care requires an evidence base of utility, a prepared workforce, and technology platforms that will support data streams of a type and magnitude not seen before in health. In this first module of the Global Genomics Forum, learn how a collaboration of hospitals and research centers in the Australian State of Victoria was formed to bring concerted effort to overcoming these challenges and implement genomics into everyday standard care for Victorian patients.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize the need for whole-of-system change in the implementation of clinical genomics
  • Demonstrate evidence for the utility and economics of genomics as a front line test
  • Distinguish the different requirements for the implementation of technology in emerging versus established areas of clinical practice
  • Contrast the differences in data sharing preferences and concerns between patient populations and well populations
