GenoSpace has announced that Inova Health System has selected GenoSpace Population Analytics to support their whole-genome sequencing initiative.

The Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI), a division of Inova Health System, is focused on bringing genomic medicine into the community hospital environment. ITMI has sequenced more than 8,000 genomes from individuals representing more than 100 countries. These sequences have been linked to extensive clinical data with the goal of discovering genetic factors contributing to a wide range of diseases. At its current rate of enrollment, ITMI will have sequenced roughly 20,000 genomes with corresponding comprehensive clinical data by the end of 2015. The GenoSpace platform provides a robust, scalable, and intuitive tool to discover disease associations within these large and complex data sets and enables the translation of these associations into the practice of medicine.

GenoSpace is a precision medicine software company that has developed a comprehensive set of tools enabling the broad use of genomic and other biomedical data in research and clinical care.

Inova Health System is a 1,649 bed health system affiliated with six hospitals throughout Virginia.
