Sanford Health & MeritCare Key Developments

Sanford Health Launches System-Wide, EHR-Integrated Pharmacogenetics Service Using Syapse Platform

Sanford Health announced the first enterprise-wide availability of real-time drug dosing and order modification alerts tailored to a patient’s genetic profile within a commercial EHR system. The company has automated pharmacogenetic clinical decision support and the internal test process using Syapse Precision Medicine Platform. To provide these services, Sanford Health’s clinical molecular genetics laboratory analyses a custom panel of genes involved in drug metabolism. The Syapse platform delivers clinically actionable drug metabolizer status information to the EHR, where real-time alerts suggest dosage changes or alternative drugs, as appropriate. The company’s integrated health plan will pay for the service, subject to deductibles and copays, which combines genetic testing and EHR-based therapeutic decision support to help clinicians safely prescribe and dose common drugs, including statins, blood thinners, anti-cancer drugs and painkillers. Pharmacogenetic testing is available for all Sanford patients and can be ordered by any Sanford physician, including primary care providers.

Medtronic plc Enters into Patent License Agreement with Sanford Health

Medtronic plc has entered into a patent license agreement with Sanford Health to develop a stent graft system for less invasive treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms. Sanford Health vascular surgeon Patrick Kelly, MD, developed the concept for the system and has since collaborated with Medtronic to manufacture devices based on the concept. Sanford Health holds the intellectual property covered by the exclusive patent license agreement with Medtronic. Medtronic plans to study the system in collaboration with physicians at several medical centers, including Dr. Kelly at Sanford Health, starting in the near future and subsequently to commercialize it after obtaining the required regulatory approvals.
