2bPrecise, an Allscripts company, launches a Genomics and Precision Medicine Initiative at National Institutes of Health

CHICAGO, Aug. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2bPrecise LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Allscripts Healthcare Inc. (Allscripts) (NASDAQ:MDRX), has launched a strategic early adopter program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), America’s leading Care Institution for clinical research and a long-time Allscripts Sunrise™ client. The program will focus on deploying a cloud-based genomics and precision medicine solution designed by 2bPrecise.



The 2bPrecise EHR Agnostic solution will enable physicians and researchers to use genomic information in their current Allscripts Sunrise™ workflow, simplifying and optimizing the complex process of finding, selecting, ordering and receiving genomic tests. Using the 2bPrecise genomics and precision medicine solution, results of genomic sequencing tests will be made available and actionable at the point of care through Allscripts Sunrise™ electronic health record (EHR).

Experts from NIH in the field of genomic medicine will be the early adopters of the 2bPrecise solution. Users of the program will pan across the National Human Genome Research Institute, the National Cancer Institute and the NIH Clinical Center.

“We are honored and excited to work with NIH, one of the most innovative research institutions in the world, on this dimensional change of health care. 2bPrecise will soon be able to take a big step toward bringing an easy-to-use, clinical-genomic solution into the mainstream,” said 2bPrecise General Manager Assaf Halevy. Soon, this solution offering will be available to any provider, integrated delivery network or payer organization who wants to advance the research that will unlock new insights of molecular diagnostics and new treatments.

In addition to improving the workflow experience for physicians and nurses, the 2bPrecise solution uses advanced methods in clinical-genomic ontology and data harmonization and will return merged, semantically harmonized knowledge in a machine-readable and structured format. Medical researchers can combine genomic data with clinical and environmental information in a manner that enables statistical analysis and pattern detection.
