GenomOncology IgniteIQ

GenomOncology has introduced IgniteIQ, software that extracts and adds computable structure to "clinically relevant" data from PDF next-generation sequencing and pathology reports. The company backs the automated extraction with human review to validate the discrete data elements so the extracted information is useful for clinicians, bioinformaticians, and researchers. IgniteIQ can process PDF documents from both electronic medical records and research data warehouses.
