Personalized Health & Genomics


Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center has developed the first universal EHR-based order and requisition for Next-Generation Sequencing from external molecular labs. What started out as a process improvement project for specimen send out has become an innovative data capture strategy that is hugely beneficial to SCCC.
At this point in the healthcare industry, the concept of precision medicine is well defined as a focus. According to the Precision Medicine Initiative, it is "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person."
