Open Source Health, Geneyouin Collaborate to Improve Cloud-based Health Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Canadian firms Open Source Health, an integrative healthcare solutions developer focused on women's health, and Geneyouin, a genetic testing and consulting services provider, today said they have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on commercializing OSH's cloud-based platform for integrated and preventative healthcare.

Under the terms of the agreement, the partners will collaborate to define and design electronic health records that incorporate a patient's genomic data into their records, which would enable healthcare providers to come up with personalized health plans that improve wellness and reduce medical costs, Sonya Satveit, founder and CEO of Open Source Health, said in a statement.

The added information will enable clinicians and scientists to assess disease risk, drug sensitivity, and more.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
