Elimu to present on Genomics at FHIR Dev Days
Don’t miss Elimu founder, Aziz Boxwala’s, session at FHIR Dev Days on June 15th at 3:30pm Central. This session will illustrate the use of multiple FHIR standards in creating a complex clinical decision-support (CDS) app based on whole genome sequence data. If you’ve ever wondered, “Where do I store large genome files and how can I leverage my EHR data for genomics decision support?” then this is the session for you. We will describe the advantages of using FHIR standards, the gaps in the standards, and the challenges for app developers in applying complex logic to large datatypes such as genomic sequence data.
Elimu releases automated SOFA calculator
As hospital resources become constrained due to COVID-19 related patient surges, having a data driven view of multi organ failure due to sepsis, and other causes, is a necessity. The Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) embeds in your EHR, pulls all of the data needed for the calculation, and writes the score back to the EHR chart.
Meet up with us at HIMSS 2020 in Orlando!
The Elimu team will be at HIMSS 2020 in sunny Orlando, Florida. If you’d like to discuss any of our SMART on FHIR products, Consulting Services, see a product demo, or just say hello, we’d love to see you!
November HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter: Access & Security in Genome Analysis
Human genome data can be analyzed to derive immense healthcare benefits, and equally misused with disastrous consequences for victims of its theft. While we want to analyze large quantities of genetic data to maximize our knowledge, we need to keep this data completely secure. A new framework for genomic data analysis using brand-new mathematical techniques for data encryption gives both freedom and security…
Join us at the Intersystems Global Summit 2019
We’re honored to be part of the Intersystems Global Summit’s inaugural Start-up Showcase. We’ll be at a booth on the third floor (Berkeley Room) of the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Sept 23rd and 24th, from 1pm – 5pm. Stop by to get a demo of Sapphire or let us know you’re coming via the link below.
September HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter: Precision Medicine on FHIR?
While current science is far from providing a uniform cure for cancer, we believe that the reasons for the lack of benefit are many-fold, and that we can do better, and that HL7 FHIR, coupled with clinical decision support (CDS) can help.
How do we overcome the barriers to precision oncology? We are far far far from understanding the complex biology of cancer. Available targeted treatment options are impressive achievements, but are woefully limited. FHIR won’t help here – rather, the incremental advancement of science will push forward, thanks to the ongoing contributions of countless basic science and clinical researchers…
Join Us at the August San Diego FHIR Meetup!
Join us for an evening of FHIR talk and innovation at the San Diego FHIR Meetup on August 20th at 5pm. Elimu is co-hosting this event with our friends at Health Samurai. Our very own, Aziz Boxwala, will be giving a talk. Click the link below for the agenda and other event details.
The July HL7 FHIR & Genomics Newsletter is here!
So we’ve been writing a lot about the importance of using genomic data in Clinical Decision Support (CDS). We’ve also written about the importance of Genomic Archiving and Communication Systems (GACS) to store the petabytes upon petabytes of data that will inevitably arise from genomic sequencing. What we haven’t touched on yet is a rather uncomfortable truth – a good portion of the identified genomic variants that come back from genetic tests can actually be false positives according to some reports . How do we know which variants are safe to use in CDS and which ones to ignore?
The June FHIR & Genomics Newsletter is here!
This year’s AMIA Clinical Informatics Conference saw a lot of action in the area of improving EHR usability. Be sure to read our recap that includes links to some of the solutions we found interesting. Plus, we share some favorite articles in the realm of Genomics and FHIR. Happy reading!
Our VCF to FHIR Translator is now a web app!
You asked and we listened. We’ve converted our VCF to FHIR translator for genetic test results into a web app available here. That’s right, you no longer have to download the source code and install it (though you still can here.) You can now just go straight to a functioning app and have at it. All you need is a VCF file or three, and you’re all set. Don’t have any VCF files? Don’t worry, you can download those from our web app as well.
