Genomic Medicine Clinical Implementation and Evaluation

Clinical Evidence Base for, and Demonstrating Effectiveness of, Genomic Medicine

Investigation of the clinical impact of genomic medicine and the conditions under which patients are most likely to derive the greatest benefit.

Health Disparities, Health Equity and Access to Genomic Medicine

Improvement of the quantity or quality of genomic data in underrepresented populations, particularly as related to population differences in disease risk or disparities in healthcare, and identification of barriers to accessing genomic medicine in underserved areas and populations.

Return of Results and Outcome Research

Improvement of how information is shared with research volunteers and their physicians to inform treatment and healthcare management, and the impact of that information on healthcare practices, costs, equity and efficiencies and on patients’ quality of life.

Electronic Health Records and Clinical Decision Support

Electronic Medical Records / Electronic Health Records Related Genomic Studies (GWAS, PheWAS)

Integration of genomic data with electronic medical record systems for large-scale, high-throughput genetic research to support genomic medicine implementation. Includes integrating genomic, clinical and family history data into a genomic informed risk assessment and incorporating genomic information into electronic medical records and clinical decision support systems.
