New Consortium Seeks to Move FHIR Genomics Standard Into Clinical Practice

Looking to move an emerging standard for clinical genomics data interoperability into the clinic as quickly as possible, one of the standard's key developers is inviting potential users to participate in a series of implementation activities.

At the Health Level Seven International Genomics Conference in Washington, DC, today, HL7 Clinical Genomics Workgroup Cochair Gil Alterovitz announced the creation of the Consortium for Agile Genomics. "The idea is to promote implementations of an HL7 genomics platform to provide project support, certification, expertise, and validation tools to help its members to navigate, implement, and to collaborate on challenges of genomic integration," he said.
