Identifying and Managing Patients Who Meet Evidence-Based Criteria for Genetic Evaluation of Familial Cancer Using the FHIR Data Standard

February 26, 2020 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET
NCI Shady Grove, 9609 Medical Center Drive, Room 2W032/034, and via Webinar

On Wednesday, February 26, Dr. Guilherme Del Fiol and Dr. Richard Bradshaw will present, "Identifying and Managing Patients Who Meet Evidence-Based Criteria for Genetic Evaluation of Familial Cancer Using the FHIR Data Standard."

Drs. Del Fiol and Bradshaw will discuss OpenCDS, a clinical decision support platform, and show how it can be integrated with electronic health records (EHRs) to identify and manage patients who may benefit from genetic evaluation of their hereditary cancer risk. They will describe the software architecture, clinical workflow, and show results of a study by the Huntsman Cancer Institute that piloted this application with patients from the University of Utah.

This project is funded through NCI’s Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program (1U24CA204800-01A1).

The Data Science Seminar Series presents talks from innovators in the research and informatics communities both within and outside of NCI.

Guilherme Del Fiol, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Guilherme Del Fiol is an associate professor and Vice Chair of Research at the University of Utah’s Department of Biomedical Informatics. His research interests are in the design, development, evaluation, and dissemination of standards-based clinical decision support interventions, with a focus on cancer prevention. Dr. Guilherme Del Fiol has a medical degree from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a doctorate in biomedical informatics from the University of Utah, and a master's degree in computer science from the Catholic University of Parana, Brazil.

Richard Bradshaw, Ph.D.

Dr. Richard Bradshaw is a clinical informaticist currently working in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah. He leads the design and dissemination of an open source population-based clinical decision support (CDS) platform for detecting and managing patients with familial cancer risk. Prior to the University of Utah, Dr. Bradshaw held positions at Intermountain Healthcare as a senior medical informaticist, clinical knowledge engineer, and software engineer specializing in CDS, knowledge engineering/management, software engineering/architecture, metadata/data architecture, and interoperability. He earned both a doctorate and a master's degree in biomedical informatics from the University of Utah.
