Intermountain Healthcare and Syapse Collaborate to Improve Access to Clinical Genomics for Community Oncologists
ST. GEORGE, Utah & PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intermountain Healthcare (an internationally recognized not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, a medical group with over 185 physician clinics, and an affiliated health insurance company) and Syapse (the leading provider of software for bringing omics data into routine medical use) announced today a collaboration to bring genomics-driven precision cancer care to oncologists within the Intermountain system and also worldwide. This new clinical service, Intermountain Cancer Genomics, will provide cost-effective, genomics-driven, personalized treatment planning through easy-to-use software.
Intermountain Cancer Genomics is a comprehensive clinical service providing tumor genome profiling, analysis of genomic data from a molecular tumor board, targeted therapy options, drug procurement, and outcomes analysis. The service leverages Intermountain’s in-house infrastructure, which includes a clinical sequencing laboratory and an affiliated health insurance plan. The integrated service utilizes a molecular tumor board to develop treatment options from genomic testing results, in order to effectively procure targeted therapeutics. Quality-of-life issues also factor prominently in treatment plan development.
Syapse software will power Intermountain Cancer Genomics. Using Syapse’s web-based interface, oncologists will be able to order molecular tests, view genomic results and molecular tumor board interpretation, make a treatment selection, and order drugs targeted to a patient’s specific genomic makeup. Syapse software integrates data from multiple source systems to provide oncologists with a unified view of their patients’ clinical and genomics data, while also tracking patient outcomes.
