eMERGE & Beyond: The Future of Electronic Medical Records and Genomics
October 30, 2017
On October 30th, 2017, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) is hosting a program review workshop entitled eMERGE and Beyond: The Future of EHR and Genomics. The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) network conducts genomic discovery and clinical implementation research by leveraging data from large biorepositories linked to electronic medical records. The workshop serves to highlight accomplishments of eMERGE as well as identify potential eMERGE future directions. The workshop will identify gaps, discuss challenges and define future opportunities in genomic medicine research.
The workshop will focus on the following four main topics:
Evidence generation for genomic medicine
Identification of novel and disruptive opportunities in genomic medicine
Electronic phenotyping for genomic research
Electronic Medical Records (EMR) integration of genomic results and automated decision support.
