Congenica, a UK-based digital health company that enables the rapid analysis and interpretation of genomic data, has selected the GenomOncology Precision Oncology Platform for the development of a novel ground-breaking CE-IVD Precision Oncology Solution.
Driven by the increasing adoption of cancer genomics and the growing need to individualize therapeutic recommendations, Congenica is developing a fully automated data analysis application, aimed at transforming the usability and scalability of genomic data for routine oncology clinical practice.
To further enrich decision support capabilities for this novel precision oncology solution, Congenica is collaborating with GenomOncology to provide regional therapy recommendations.
GenomOncology’s Precision Oncology Platform is designed to harmonize the latest precision oncology information, which includes an extensive set of annotations and ontologies, as well as curated public, licensed, and proprietary content and data sets. By incorporating this comprehensive knowledgebase, Congenica will have improved access to curated, precision oncology information from the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, and others, to yield data-driven insights and recommendations within their CDS.
Alistair Johnson, Chief Professional Services Officer at Congenica, said: “This collaboration signifies the expansion of Congenica’s Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Platform into oncology. Our novel product offers a fully automated future-proof end-to-end solution that unlocks the full potential of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in the clinical oncology space. GenomOncology brings extensive experience in precision oncology care, and its platform has been developed specifically to deliver clinical informatics solutions for cancer. We look forward to working with GenomOncology to further drive precision medicine, delivering high quality patient care and shaping the future of human health.”
“Our partnership with Congenica enables us to expand opportunities for precision oncology care at the global level. The extensive information available within the GenomOncology Precision Oncology Platform, combined with the capabilities of the Congenica Clinical Decision Support Platform, will give clinicians and researchers the knowledge needed to provide their patients with the most appropriate care opportunities,” said Brad Wertz, Chief Executive Officer at GenomOncology.
