Health Heritage, launched in May at NorthShore University HealthSystems, has three unique capabilities aimed at the intersection of genomic and personalized medicine:
First, it provides consumers with the ability to easily connect with their electronic medical records and use a custom built natural language based processing engine to extract specific detailed medical data. These include the number, type, and location of colonic polyps and the exact diagnosis and dates of onset of significant conditions that are needed to determine their risk of developing important common diseases such as cancer.
Second, it has dynamic methods for family members to share these data to create accurate family medical histories.
Third, it has an extensive risk assessment engine based on the latest scientific evidence and clinical guidelines that uses these data to provide individualized prevention and screening recommendations ranging from changes in lifestyle to referrals for genetic testing.
