HiGHmed and EUCANCan will jointly, with the Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development (CRS4) organize the first international openEHR workshop for genomics on the 5th and 6th of June, 2019 in Cagliari, Italy. The workshop will be hosted by the CRS4.
OpenEHR experts will discuss the possibilities, limitations and challenges of genomics openEHR in the context of clinical applications and research.
In international collaboration, the HiGHmed Genomics working group (Germany) and the Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development (CRS4, Italy) have jointly developed a common semantic data model based on openEHR archtetypes for the representation of variant information derived from whole genome sequencing and exome sequencing data. Domain experts were consulted and international openEHR editors supported the modeling of the genomic archetypes. The archetypes will be published in the international Clinical Knowledge Manager and will be puclicly displayed and accesible to facilitate semantic interoperability for genomic data. These genomics archetypes will be officially released during the workshop.
