Precision Medicine Adoption Review

Precision Medicine

What an exciting time for precision medicine… Genomic sequencing is becoming better, faster, and cheaper at an exponential rate, outpacing even Moore’s Law. What was impossible or prohibitively expensive some 10 years ago is becoming affordable not only for academic research but also for clinical applications. With the price of the whole genome sequencing having fallen to $1,000 USD when done at scale, more and more innovative organizations are looking for ways to use genomics data to revolutionize and personalize

Capitalizing on Analytics Means Protecting, Securing, and Sharing Your Data

By Adam Lorant, VP Product and Solutions, PHEMI Modern data science and analytics hold the potential to transform healthcare—from helping hospitals operate more efficiently, to identifying precision medicine targets, to evaluating public health initiatives, and more. All of these advances, however, depend on sharing data. It’s not enough to collect more information. If you can’t share it—with analysts, investigators, partners, clinical decision-makers—you can’t capitalize on it. But, as you collect and share more data, you have a legal and ethical obligation

The Time Is Now for Healthcare Big Data

Healthcare big data can power amazing advances. By analyzing vast quantities of genomic data, clinical records, and healthcare business intelligence, researchers can discover new targeted therapies, identify disease risk factors, improve hospital operations and much more. But all of that depends on one basic premise: more people (clinicians, researchers, analysts) having access to much more information. And that’s far from the reality today. The biggest issue: fragmented data. In most healthcare organizations, data is spread out across multiple servers, databases,
