Description:

Next generation sequencing technologies are widely being adopted by laboratories for the diagnosis of inherited genetic disorders and in oncology. Although diagnostic laboratories are incorporating novel instruments and bioinformatics tools, laboratory directors are facing increasingly complex challenges in choosing appropriate approaches for assay selection and in developing comprehensive validation methods that examine the pre-analytical, analytical and post analytical phases of an assay. This webinar will present general considerations for approaches used for assay selection and validation of next-generation sequencing based tests for inherited genetic disorders.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the key considerations used for assay selection and validation.
  • Describe the current approaches for validation testing of next-generation sequencing based tests for inherited genetic disorders.
  • Define the major performance metrics for validation testing and identify use of reference standards in defining performance metrics

Danville, PA

 

Host: Nilesh G. Dharajiya, MD

AMP T&E Committee Member

Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine, LLC
San Diego, CA

 

Description:

This presentation will focus on the importance of the electronic health record as a tool to support the implementation of genomic medicine. In particular the importance of moving beyond passive representation of laboratory results to results tied to knowledge and action will be explored. Use of clinical decision support to promote evidence based best practices will be demonstrated using genomic medicine use cases. Opportunities and barriers to implementation will be covered. Future opportunities including direct engagement with patients and families will be also presented.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define genomic, personalized and precision medicine
  • Identify the differences between passive, asynchronous and active clinical decision support
  • Discuss genomic medicine applications that utilize the functionality of electronic health records to impact patient care
