Electronic Health Records and Genomic Data – Challenges and Opportunities

AMP Horizons Series: Electronic Health Records and Genomic Data – Challenges and Opportunities


Description:

Recognizing the challenges of the storage and use of genomic data in electronic health records (EHRs), AMP convened the EHR Interoperability for Clinical Genomics Data Working Group to assess the challenges and opportunities and to recommend solutions on ways to resolve current problems associated with the display and use of genomic data in EHRs. In this lecture, Dr. Somak Roy, Co-Chair, moderates as Dr. Alexis Carter, Chair, provides an update on the challenges of ordering, resulting and using genomic data in EHRs, which was recently accepted for publication by the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics.

Please note this course is free for six months for nonmembers (After April 29, 2022 the price will be $195)

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the current challenges associated with ordering and resulting genomic tests and data in the EHR.
  • Describe the challenges with displaying aggregate genomic data across tests, specimens, and clinical conditions.
  • Describe variant re-interpretation vs. re-classification practices and their impact on genomic data and reporting to EHRs. 
  • Describe opportunities for improvement and future work.
