Integrating Genetic Data in Clinical Workflows: How CCPM Established a Personalized Health Framework


This webinar discusses what it takes to begin realizing precision medicine in a comprehensive clinical infrastructure, with insights from the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine (CCPM).

Kristy Crooks, Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Denver, describes how CCPM approached implementation of personalized medicine and collaborated with BC Platforms to create a system for clinically-compliant workflows from raw data to report generation.

Genetic data production and integration into clinical workflows is rapidly accelerating with the rise of new technologies and consumer interest. The accumulation of large-scale health and genetic data creates significant opportunities for new insights to improve patient care and accelerate therapeutic development. There is a demand for efficient, end-to-end data processing, but a bottleneck in data management and interpretation contributes to challenges in realizing the potential of this data.

To address these challenges, CCPM, in collaboration with BC Platforms, developed an automated pipeline that enables high-throughput processing of Illumina genotype array data, pharmacogenetics reporting for clinical decision support, and direct delivery of these results through integration with the Electronic Health Record (Epic). This webinar will highlight insights gained while building this system and ways to tackle challenges associated with the shift to data driven healthcare.
