Sanford Health Appoints Cornelius Boerkoel as Executive Director of Sanford Imagenetics Research Center

Sanford Health announced that Cornelius Boerkoel is joining the company as the executive director of the Sanford Imagenetics Research Center on Genomic and Molecular Medicine. Boerkoel will use his more than 30 years of research and clinical expertise to investigate new ways of expanding Sanford Imagenetics through development of genetic and genomic medicine tools for primary care medical practice at Sanford Health. Boerkoel most recently served as a staff clinician and directed the translational laboratory at the National Institutes of Health Undiagnosed Diseases Program.

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.
