David Raths, editor for Healthcare Informatics recaps the session Clinical Decision Support - At Home and In The Cloud from the 7th Annual Healthcare Informatics Symposium."

Using the new Proband iPad® app, genetic counselors, clinical genetics specialists and others can quickly create even the most complex family pedigrees simply and easily screen with a few finger taps, during a face-to-face encounter with an individual and his or her family.

It’s a bit surreal to go to a science fair at a hospital. But the group of health IT companies from DreamIt Venture’s accelerator coupled with demonstrations of technology from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania helped set the scene for a new initiative by DreamIt that’s starting at CHOP. The program is designed to help companies and institutions develop enterprise software and commercially viable companies.

CBMi-Seq analysis provides primary analysis and management of researchers' next generation sequencing data-from delivery of raw data to sequence assembly, variant detection, annotation, and discovery.

A team of informatics experts and biomedical researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) offers a new software toolkit to help researchers wrangle data. Their open-source, highly interactive framework called Harvest (http://harvest.research.chop.edu) is designed to let users to navigate quickly among different types and levels of data.

The Center for Biomedical Informatics and Temple University's Department of Health Informatics Management, are offering a the Post-Baccalaureate Health Informatics Certificate.

Genome-scale clinical sequencing is being adopted more broadly in medical practice. The National Institutes of Health developed the Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program to guide implementation and dissemination of best practices for the integration of sequencing into clinical care. CBMi staff contributed to this article published online in Genetics in Medicine September 26, 2013.

Despite proven health benefits, human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination rates are among the lowest of all routine immunizations. No previous large-scale trial has compared the benefit of automated decision support directed at clinicians, families, or both in any context.
