FDA to Advance Precision Medicine by Enabling Open Source Collaborative Informatics

FDA plays an integral role in President Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative, which foresees the day when an individual’s medical care will be tailored in part based on their unique characteristics and genetic make-up. Yet while more than 80 million genetic variants have been found in the human genome, we don’t understand the role that most of these variants play in health or disease. Achieving the President’s vision requires working collaboratively to ensure the accuracy of genetic tests in detecting and interpreting genetic variants. We are working towards that goal by developing an informatics community and supporting platform we call precisionFDA.

Medicaid as a Service Part II: The State’s Perspective

This article is the second in a series of four proposing a revolutionary new direction in Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) structure and pricing...Our first article, outlining the general scheme, may be read here. To summarize, we propose that states treat MMIS as a service, as opposed to treating it as a procurement. Put another way - MMIS is a verb (Something you do) vice a noun (something you possess). In the current paradigm, individual States (to include the District of Columbia) create independent, stand-alone MMIS platforms with long contract lead- and execution- times.

Veterans Health Administration Thinks Key to Interoperability May Be in the Cloud

Joseph Conn | Modern Healthcare | January 9, 2017

The giant Veterans Health Administration is poking its head into the cloud to see if therein lies the key to sharing data within and outside of its sprawling healthcare delivery system. The goal of the Digital Health Platform is to pull patient data from the VA, military and commercial electronic health record systems, applications, devices and wearables and send it to a patient's healthcare team in real-time. That would allow patients to more easily obtain health care from physicians and hospitals outside of VA facilities, but some experts say a cloud-based platform also leaves it vulnerable to hackers...
