UCSF Aims to Bridge "the Last Mile" in Precision Medicine

Illustration: UCSF

Precision medicine is a new model of health care, which gains insights from an individual's history and biology patterns, to create more precise diagnosis and treatment, at a lower cost. Precision medicine is a big data problem. Despite the completion of Human Genome Project more than ten years ago and the development in the field as a whole, precision medicine is still not a routine practice of medicine due to the lack of appropriate technical work and software platforms.

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) unveils a new cloud-based software platform built in partnership with Syapse to integrate genomic testing and analysis, personalized treatment regimens, clinical data, and outcomes data into UCSF Medical Center’s electronic medical record (EMR) system. Through its Genomic Medicine Initiative, UCSF aims to bridge the gap in precision medicine.
