Systems for Research and Evaluation for Translating Genome-Based Discoveries for Health: Workshop Summary.


Institute of Medicine (US) Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health.

The Institute of Medicine's Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health identified a need for a workshop to examine existing systems that could be adapted to evaluate the clinical use and impact of genetically based innovations in patient care. Established in 2007, the Roundtable seeks to foster dialogue and partnerships that will advance the field of genomics and improve the translation of basic genomic research to health care, education, and health policy. On February 12, 2009, the Roundtable convened a workshop designed to address four central questions related to the development of systems to evaluate clinical use of health care innovations that stem from genome-based research: What are the practical realities of creating such systems? What different models could be used? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each model? How effectively can such systems address questions about health outcomes?
