Moving Precision Medicine Towards an Integrated Knowledge Network
Recent advances in genomics and clinical data analysis has led to the prospect of ‘precision medicine’. As the availability of genomic data is becoming more prevalent, there is now a growing demand to integrate it with patient-specific data (including clinical, behavioral, socio-economic, environmental data) to formulate personalized and prospective diagnostics, risk assessments, investigations and therapies.
Dalhousie University Faculty of Computer Science and Orion Health invite you to join us for a workshop on December 5th & 6th, where Precision Medicine researchers and clinicians will discuss how to manage and analyze data and knowledge resources.
Topics to be discussed include:
Vision for Precision Medicine Research
Access paths to clinical health data for translational research
Linking of public’s personal health information including social determinants of health
Expansion of Jurisdictional Electronic Health Record’s longitudinal data to include output from
Translational Research that leverages Clinical Data and Genome data and other biologic ‘ome’ data, Social
Determinants of Health and Personal Health Information
Practical approaches to integration of Clinician Information System with direct access to patient’s
expanded EHR longitudinal data
Outline for business case to Federal Agencies for Innovation Investments
Identification of regional and national network partners for Personalized Medicine and Translational
Research e.g. Genome Canada, CIHR, CHI, etc.
In this session, we will work towards three key takeaways:
High Level Plan and Precision Medicine Roadmap
Action Steps for Demonstration Project(s)
High Level Business Case, Atlantic Canada
