Integration of pharmacogenomics in Patient- centered healthcare

Author(s): Adrijana Kekic

 This workshop is intended for clinicians, researchers, and payers interested in results of implementation of pharmacogenomics in patient-centered model of care.

Scope of the Workshop


The workshop is focused on sharing examples of lessons learned from the clinic. Areas of practice covered will include cardiology, psychology, transplant, anesthesia and palliative care.

The intent of this workshop is to provide an interactive forum for discussion on the role and integration of PGx at bedside, with specific emphasis on chronic disease management, polypharmacy, therapy selection and pre-emptive prescribing.

Goals of the Workshop:

                      Discuss the impact of PGx in patient centered model of care.

                      Increase enthusiasm for implanting PGx testing in the clinic.

Encourage collaborations in PGx discoveries and clinical implementations.


Pharmacogenomics is a significant segment of accuracy medication. Despite the fact that different hindrances to execution stay, there are an expanding number of models showing the utility of pharmacogenomic orientated electronic wellbeing record (EHR) informatics, utilizing automated wellbeing records to keep up familiarity with pharmacogenomic results to direct medication determination and dosing. Especially, clinical choice help (CDS) has been distinguished as a basic apparatus for the execution of pharmacogenomics into routine patient consideration.


The volume, developing, and suffering nature of pharmacogenomic information that should be applied during a patient experience presents difficulties to carrying out pharmacogenomics into routine consideration. The Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC) has distributed clinical rules for 13 qualities including remedial proposals for more than 30 medications. Further, more than 120 medications contain genomic data in their item name. Intricacy will increment as extra rules and clinically significant pharmacogenomic connections are found, including situations where numerous qualities impact drug treatment. Additionally, pharmacogenomic results can have clinical utility all through a patient's life. Test results in the far off past could in any case impact drug choice and dosing years after the fact, and ought to be utilized to streamline drug treatment. It could be hard for clinicians to recall both appropriate quality medication collaborations and any past pharmacogenomic test results for a particular patient during the requesting work process of patient consideration. Luckily, the expanded utilization of EHRs across medical services works with gives answers for these information the board difficulties.


In any event, when clinicians have pharmacogenomic results promptly accessible their translations can be mind boggling. They may not be keen on the unpredictable subtleties of a pharmacogenomic result, rather they essentially need proof based remedial proposals that are reliable with rules and wellbeing framework strategies to advance medication treatment. Informatics instruments give an answer since parts of the understanding interaction can be computerized and assets are arising to coordinate the hidden information needed for robotization.


It has been recommended that executing pharmacogenomic CDS presents difficulties steady with other sizable informatics efforts.However, EHR merchant support for pharmacogenomics is as yet arising and is as of now restricted, which brings about generous nearby institutional exertion contrasted for certain different kinds of CDS. This is particularly an issue for associations without generous genomics ability or clinical informatics support. Difficulties incorporate putting away pharmacogenomic information, which is significant over a patient's lifetime, introducing suggestions to clinicians in an opportune way that is flawlessly coordinated with clinical work processes, and refreshing CDS proposals as the information base changes. The motivation behind this paper is to portray existing pharmacogenomic informatics models, distinguish key execution steps, and examine arising assets to work with the advancement of pharmacogenomic clinical choice help in the EHR.
