Session ID: 

Technology to Enable the Clinical Genomics Revolution

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


The implementation of clinical genomics has the potential to fundamentally change patient care, delivering on the promise of precision medicine. But 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. This is a true big data challenge, and the solutions to this challenge must be in line with patients' changing expectations of how their data is managed and shared. With a focus on technology to support the coming genomics revolution, an approach to the delivery of systems that are in line with patients expectations will be discussed as part of a tried and tested approach to the "whole of system" change required to deliver clinical genomics.

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
