Luke Rasumussen’s DocUBuild Web App Featured in GenomeWeb
Luke Rasmussen, a Clinical Research Associate at Feinberg School of Medicine and frequent collaborator with CHiP, was recently featured in an article on GenomeWeb. The article, “Researchers Develop Web App to Improve Curation, Delivery of Genomic Knowledge to Point of Care,” focuses on a web application Luke co-created with Casey Overby Taylor from Johns Hopkins University. The app, called DocUBuild, is a centralized content management system for genomic data designed to make data retrieval more context-specific and efficient. The app can be used to create sharable genomic medicine documents that can be exported for use in local electronic health record (EHR) environments.
DocUBuild grew from the National Human Genome Research Institute’s Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) network, a national network that combines DNA biorepositories with electronic medical record (EMR) systems to support genetic research. The app supports clinical decision-making by creating resources that aid providers in interpreting test results and clinical decision making.
