Oracle, Thailand Life Sciences Center to Build Informatics System Under PGx Project

NEW YORK, July 13 (GenomeWeb News) - Oracle Thailand and the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences will jointly develop a system to gather electronic health records under the TCELS Pharmacogenomics Project, Oracle said today.

 

For the project, TCELS and Oracle, which signed a preliminary agreement in January, will develop a nationwide system to capture clinical and genetic patient information. Based on technologies provided by Oracle, the project's infrastructure will be developed in collaboration with "selected partners from around the region," according to the company.

 

TCELS was founded last summer under a royal decree by the King of Thailand to provide a research and investment center for life sciences to benefit Thai citizens and the region.
