The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics Network is a National Human Genome Research Institute-funded consortium engaged in the development of methods and best practices for using the electronic medical record as a tool for genomic research. Now in its sixth year and second funding cycle, and comprising nine research groups and a coordinating center, the(More)
Successfully realizing the vision of genomic medicine will require management of large amounts of complex data. The electronic health record (EHR) is destined to play a critical role in the translation of genomic information into clinical care. The papers in this special issue explore the challenges associated with the implementation of genomics in the EHR.(More)
BACKGROUND Genomic medicine has the potential to improve care by tailoring treatments to the individual. There is consensus in the literature that pharmacogenomics (PGx) may be an ideal starting point for real-world implementation, due to the presence of well-characterized drug-gene interactions. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) is an ideal avenue by which(More)
Genomic, proteomic, epigenomic, and other "omic" data have the potential to enable precision medicine, also commonly referred to as personalized medicine. The volume and complexity of omic data are rapidly overwhelming human cognitive capacity, requiring innovative approaches to translate such data into patient care. Here, we outline a conceptual model for(More)
