Streamlining Genetic Test Ordering and Resulting Through the Electronic Health Record with Katherine L. Nathanson, MD, Stephanie Asher, MS, CGC, and Jordan Trivison

  • In this webinar, we will discuss the intricacies of effectively integrating genomic test ordering and results into an EHR system and discuss the importance of standardizing the process.  We will highlight a real world integration of genomic data, which has been recently described in detail in a publication in Genetics in Medicine: Lau-Min KS et al. Real-world integration of genomic data into the electronic health record: the PennChart Genomics Initiative. Genet Med. 2021 Apr;23(4):603-605. doi: 10.1038/s41436-020-01056-y. Epub 2020 Dec 10.
