LifeOmic Molecular Tumor Board

LifeOmic has introduced a software-based product called Molecular Tumor Board, including modules for clinical trial matching and for viewing longitudinal patient histories. The patient viewer brings together genomic test results with electronic health records and displays an indexed list of genomic variants augmented with annotation beyond what clinical labs provide. LifeOmic annotations help prioritize variants so the trial matcher can identify suitable clinical trials for each patient. The Molecular Tumor Board software then makes recommendations that can be output to the EHR.
