Sanford Health and Nicklaus Children's Hospital Collaborate to Sequence Genes

Sanford Health and Nicklaus Children's Hospital will sequence the genes of nearly 1,000 Latino and Hispanic people in an effort to better understand the health needs of those populations. To launch the project, philanthropist Denny Sanford and Sanford Health have jointly given $7 million to the Nicklaus Children's Personalized Medicine Initiative in Miami.

The project is among the many innovative efforts underway at the 289-bed Nicklaus Children's Hospital, flagship of the Miami Children's Health System. Founded in 1950, the hospital was re-branded with the Nicklaus name in 2015 in honor of golf icon Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbara, and in appreciation of the generous support of the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation. The Foundation was created by the Nicklaus family in 2004 to support world-class children's healthcare in South Florida and nationwide.

Genomic medicine focuses on the use of genetic and genomic information to personalize care, in this case, for children. For example, doctors can help determine which therapies or medications work better for individuals once they have some genetic information. It allows physicians to improve treatment outcomes by better understanding the individual characteristics of each patient. The money will help sequence the genes of Hispanic or Latino pediatric patients and their families.

Modernizing Medicine and Galderma Announce Integrated Over-the-Counter eCommerce Platform

New Capabilities Streamline Patient Treatment Plans and Simplify Patient Purchasing

Boca Raton based specialty-specific health information technology leader Modernizing Medicine, Inc. and global leader in skin health, Galderma Laboratories, L.P., recently announced a collaboration to deliver new capabilities in support of improved patient experiences and outcomes through healthcare provider recommended over-the-counter (OTC) treatment regimens and patient education materials. The program, designed by Modernizing Medicine, will simplify the healthcare provider process of creating materials and educating patients about treatment regimens, which often incorporates a combination of prescriptions and OTC products and requires patients to follow very specific instructions. The enhancements will streamline the dissemination of educational materials and treatment plans, with a new feature that will enable patients to easily order physician-recommended OTC products online and have the products delivered directly to them.

Galderma, Nestlé Skin Health's medical solutions business, is working with Modernizing Medicine to bring the solution to market and will be one of the first suppliers making its OTC products available through this integrated eCommerce solution, specifically targeting dermatology and skin health. This ground-breaking advancement is expected to include Galderma products such as Cetaphil gentle skin cleansers and moisturizers, including Cetaphil products specific for eczema-prone, acne-prone and redness-prone skin.

These enhancements to Modernizing Medicine's electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA, are designed to give clinical providers the ability to use structured data to document detailed treatment regimens combining prescription and OTC products.
