Implementing a Multisite Clinical System for Genomics with Best-in-Class Tools: the GenoVic Project

GenomeWebinar

Lead Specialist, Clinical Genomics, Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance

This webinar discusses the implementation of an enterprise-wide clinical genomics platform that is shared across 10 hospitals and research organizations in the Australian State of Victoria.

Built and managed by the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, GenoVic supports an end-to-end workflow for genomic testing across multiple independent testing laboratories and hospitals.

In designing the system, the Alliance focused on standardizing the integration of multiple laboratories to a single system and facilitating secure sharing of high-quality genomic information. Following a rigorous qualification process, the Alliance selected best-in-class tools for integration into GenoVic, delivering a standardized, integrated, and interoperable system to meet both the clinical laboratory and patient needs for the Alliance member organizations. 

Join Dr. Natalie Thorne, Lead Specialist, Clinical Genomics, to learn how the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance:

  • Created an infrastructure for scalable delivery and sharing of high-quality genomic information securely, efficiently, and sustainably
  • Advanced deployment of streamlined clinical interpretation of genomic variants by partnering with Agilent and Alissa Interpret to improve workflow management, curation, and traceability
  • Facilitated the fast and changing pace of genomics by designing a flexible, modular environment to evolve as needs change over time. 

Dr. Thorne will share key learnings from the project that molecular diagnostic laboratories can use to bring efficiency to their variant interpretation workflow through standardization and integration.

Alissa Interpret is a USA Class 1 Exempt Medical Device, Europe CE IVD, Canada and Australia Class I IVD Device.
