Health-care information technology and genotyping technology are both advancing rapidly, creating new opportunities for medical and scientific discovery. The convergence of these two technologies is now facilitating genetic association studies of unprecedented size within the context of routine clinical care. As a result, the medical community will soon be presented with a number of novel opportunities to bring functional genomics to the bedside in the area of pharmacotherapy. By linking biological material to comprehensive medical records, large multi-institutional biobanks are now poised to advance the field of pharmacogenomics through three distinct mechanisms: (i) retrospective assessment of previously known findings in a clinical practice-based setting, (ii) discovery of new associations in huge observational cohorts, and (iii) prospective application in a setting capable of providing real-time decision support. This review explores each of these translational mechanisms within a historical framework.

  1. It would have been nice to have some electronic form of PHR when I was at my first Dermatology appointment two weeks ago. Even though I knew beforehand that there were companies like MedeFile Records, I didn't think how beneficial it could be to the Practice and myself. I mean it took me about 15 minutes to fill out paper work and the sad part is... I couldn't remember my previous medical history enough to give them accurate info. It's funny becuase my room mate was at the grocery store and at check out she was able to pull out her iphone and use her barcode savings app at the transaction just with that app. It's just the same with PHR's. Less time, less work, and more accuracy!
