Incorporating Genomics into Clinical Decision Support: Personalized Medicine at Marshfield Clinic
June 21, 2005, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Carl Christensen, Chief Information Officer, and Catherine McCarty, PhD, Senior Research Scientist and Director, present an overview of the initiatives underway at Marshfield Clinic to incorporate genomics into decision support. Over the past couple of years DNA samples have been collected and banked from almost 20,000 patients. A powerful personalized medicine research database is formed by combining the genetic information with phenotypic information from a two-decade-old electronic medical record. Efforts are underway to provide point-of-care decision support using results from personalized medicine research.
