And unlike information that may be buried in text or images, structured data can readily be put to work by information systems for things like automated clinical decision support, or for electronic searches that clinicians might undertake to find health care outcome patterns among their patients.</p> <p>Today, however, many treatment centers post these actionable test results into the electronic health record (EHR), not as structured data, but as uploaded text files, as PDFs. Osterman is leading the implementation of a new, dedicated genomics module at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) that will make these test results much easier to access.</p> <p>VUMC’s EHR software comes from health information technology behemoth Epic Systems Corp., based in Verona, Wisconsin. Osterman is working to turn on Epic’s new genomics module at VUMC by summer 2021. </p> <p><strong>Read more in the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center's <em>Momentum </em>magazine <a href="https://momentum.vicc.org/2021/03/molecular-automation/">here</a>.</strong></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-lockdown-auth field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Lockdown Auth</div> <div class="field__item">1</div> </div> Thu, 04 Mar 2021 16:01:19 +0000 garchima 881 at https://www.vumc.org/dbmi DBMI Webinar Highlights: Epic Founder Judy Faulkner Q&A, 2/17/21 https://www.vumc.org/dbmi/news/dbmi-webinar-highlights-epic-founder-judy-faulkner-qa-21721 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">DBMI Webinar Highlights: Epic Founder Judy Faulkner Q&amp;A, 2/17/21</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/dbmi/users/garchima" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">garchima</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 02/25/2021 - 11:57</span> <a href="/dbmi/blog-post-rss/878" class="feed-icon" title="Subscribe to DBMI Webinar Highlights: Epic Founder Judy Faulkner Q&amp;A, 2/17/21"> RSS: <i class="fa fa-rss-square"></i> </a> <div class="field field--name-field-barista-posts-author field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Paul Govern</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The CEO and founder of one of the world’s largest electronic health record (EHR) vendors, Judith Faulkner of Epic Systems Corp., spoke about her company and answered questions at the Department of Biomedical Informatics weekly online seminar on February 17, 2021. <img alt="faulkner" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" height="135" src="https://www.vumc.org/dbmi/sites/default/files/public_files/Faulkner_Judy-Epic_edited-1.jpg" width="135" class="align-right" /></p> <p><a href="https://www.vumc.org/dbmi/person/dara-eckerle-mize-md">Dara Mize, MD</a>, assistant professor of Biomedical Informatics, moderated the seminar.
