eMERGE & Beyond: The Future of Electronic Medical Records and Genomics

Event Details

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) hosted a program review workshop entitled eMERGE and Beyond: The Future of EHR and Genomics on October 30th, 2017. 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 highlighted accomplishments of eMERGE and identified gaps, challenges and future opportunities. The workshop focused on four topics: evidence generation for genomic medicine, identification of novel and disruptive opportunities in genomic medicine, electronic phenotyping for genomic research, and Electronic Medical Records integration of genomic results and automated decision support.
