ActX, CompuGroup Medical US to Provide Genomic Decision Support for EHR Users

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – ActX said today that it has partnered with healthcare software firm CompuGroup Medical US to integrate ActX's real-time genomic decision support tools into CGM's two electronic health record solutions: CGM webEHR and CGM Clinical.

This integration allows healthcare providers using these EHR platforms to benefit from ActX's real-time alerts regarding drug efficacy, adverse reactions, and dosing based on patients' genomic information.

The newly integrated solution will also include a full genomic profile in patients' charts, ActX said, which will allow providers to be alerted about non-medication-related actionable genetic risks, such as an inherited cancer risk mutation.

"We are excited that our partnership with ActX places us in the position to support the delivery of precision medicine at the point of care," CGM CEO Werner Rodorff said in a statement.

According to the company's website, ActX is also integrated with EHR and prescribing systems from Allscripts, NewCrop, AthenaHealth, Cerner, Greenway Health, and Epic Systems.

Chicago's NorthShore University HealthSystem, which uses Epic's EHR system, said last year that it was launching decision support tools provided by ActX within its workflow.

UCLA Health has also said it would begin a pilot project with ActX to integrate genomic patient data into its Epic EHR system.
