Geisinger Health System

At the AGBT meeting last night, Johns Hopkins researcher Joshua Cohen said that the partners are looking to recruit 50,000 healthy individuals for the study.

The firm said that it anticipates using the funds to scale operations in the US and to continue rolling out its service in the UK.

Over several months, members of the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis identified initial obstacles they believe impede diagnostic accuracy.

The knowledgebase will facilitate the documenting of evidence and implementation of diagnostics-driven population health projects.

At the recent CVS, the two large health systems described introducing Cepheid platforms for flu testing across rural and satellite locations.

The pilot builds off the MyCode Community Research Health Initiative, for which Regeneron has been sequencing the exomes of Geisinger participants.

Patients can perform urinalysis at home using Healthy.io's smartphone-based kit, which immediately sends the data to a database for clinical interpretation.

Geisinger is hoping to help others around the country implement precision medicine, which requires significant investment in genomics expertise, as well as infrastructural and operational changes.

Project Santa Fe, formed last year by five health system-based labs, aims to share strategies and lab-driven programs for improving patient care with labs in other health systems.

Baylor College of Medicine and Geisinger are collaborating to generate tools and best practices to help health systems address and reduce diagnostic errors.
