BC Platforms' new GeneVision uses Microsoft Genomics Service to deliver end-to-end precision medicine
BC Platforms, a pioneer in genomic data management and analytics, today announces it has launched GeneVision, a new end-to-end Solution for Precision Medicine, that uses the Microsoft Genomics service which runs on Microsoft Azure. GeneVision provides end-to-end Software-as-a-Service solution from raw genome data to patient reports, implemented using Azure services. GeneVision utilizes several of BC Platforms existing pipeline technologies, and offers scalable, easy-to-use workflows for both genotyping and next-generation sequencing, data quality monitoring, and production of different patient reports for precision medicine.
Many healthcare institutes are currently shaping their genomic healthcare strategy, and designing their approach for transforming their operations from the use of individual genetic tests to larger data production and broader genetically assisted decision making on a population level. It is clear that the value of the generated genomic data in itself is of significant magnitude. It is not just the financial investments put into chemistry, instruments and laboratory work, but the utility of the data for further healthcare applications, and research.
However, this transformation is creating new challenges to healthcare providers due to the sheer enormity of the data volume and complexity. These challenges include the design and provision of most scalable and cost-effective solutions for future large-scale genome data production and quality control, scalable IT environment for genome data handling, and finding the streamlined solution for genomic result interpretation and delivery to clinician making decisions in patient care. GeneVision has been launched by BC Platforms to serve this need.
