Mount Sinai Creates Platform to Link Genetic Information With EMRs

Share on Facebook
Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City announced that 25,000 individuals have agreed to participate in its biobank program, which aims at linking a person's genetic information with a range of clinical and environmental information stored in his or her electronic medical record.

The program, called BioMe, uses a new platform called "Clinical Implementation of Personalized Medicine through Electronic Health Records and Genomics" or CLIPMERGE to communicate with the EMR and give physicians real-time guidance based on a patient's genetic profile. Currently, real-time feedback for therapies, based on DNA, is only available for cardiovascular disease, blood clots and high cholesterol.
