5 minute read


Date: 4 July 2024


The benefits of integrating genomics with clinical practice are widely reported and documented, demonstrating significant improvements in diagnostic accuracy and personalized treatment plans for patients worldwide. The Lifebit Clinical Portal is designed to enhance the capabilities of healthcare professionals relating to the 3 key pillars of genomics medicine: 1) clinical and molecular/Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data management, 2) patient recruitment and management, and 3) patient's timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment. By integrating AI and advanced software capabilities with genomic and health data, this solution enables clinicians to enhance patient care through improved data management, accurate diagnostics, and personalized treatments.

Lifebit's Clinical Portal v2 will dmsupport precision medicine

Lifebit's Clinical Portal includes Data Factory, Clinical Interpretation and Analysis and the Patient Management modules.


1. Data Factory: AI-powered harmonization and linkage of clinical and molecular data, combined with native integration with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and NGS companies such as Caris, Tempus and Foundation Medicine.

Lifebit differentiates itself from other SaaS platforms through its advanced capabilities in data integration and harmonization, specifically tailored to meet the complex needs of modern healthcare and research environments. Here's how Lifebit sets itself apart:

  • Seamless EHR integration with EPIC and Cerner: Lifebit’s integration capabilities with major EHR systems like EPIC and Cerner go beyond simple data transfer. The Platform ensures that genomic insights are directly embedded into the clinical workflows, enhancing the accessibility and utility of complex genomic data for healthcare providers.

  • Dedicated to clinical utility: Lifebit provides not only integration but also interprets the data within clinical contexts, something that many genomics-focused SaaS platforms overlook. This approach helps clinicians understand and utilize the information efficiently, directly impacting patient care and treatment outcomes.

  • State-of-the-art AI-powered data harmonization and linkage: Unlike typical SaaS platforms that offer only basic data integration, the Lifebit Data Factory module employs advanced ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) workflows for genomic and clinical data. This ensures data accuracy and standardization across different data formats and systems, excelling in harmonizing molecular/NGS and clinical data into Common Data Models like OMOP. The result is seamless, effective information synthesis, crucial for accurate analysis, diagnosis, and the application of precision medicine.

2. Patient Management: AI-powered patient data management and recruitment, integrating seamlessly with EHR systems to streamline patient care coordination and access.

Lifebit's unique offerings extend beyond data integration and harmonization, with specialized features designed to enhance patient management, streamline recruitment and consent processes, manage clinical notes effectively, and optimize clinical trial matching, among others. These functionalities set Lifebit apart from other SaaS platforms in the healthcare sector:

  • Robust patient management: The Lifebit Patient Management module excels in managing patient data efficiently, enabling healthcare providers to keep track of patient journeys comprehensively. Unlike other platforms that may offer limited patient management tools, the Lifebit Patient Management module integrates detailed patient histories, treatment plans, and ongoing care information in a user-friendly interface, ensuring all relevant data is accessible and actionable.

  • Streamlined recruitment and consent management: In the realm of patient recruitment and clinical data access authorization, consent management is critical. Lifebit provides a streamlined, secure consent process that not only meets but exceeds regulatory compliance standards. This system simplifies the consent process for patients and providers alike, making it easier to manage and track patient recruitment and consents over time. This feature is particularly important in ensuring ethical standards and legal compliance in clinical studies and healthcare practices.

  • Enhanced clinical notes functionality: The Lifebit Patient Management module includes advanced features for managing clinical notes, which are integral to effective patient care and medical record-keeping. Unlike typical SaaS platforms, Lifebit allows for the integration of these notes directly with other clinical and genomic data, providing a holistic view of each patient’s situation and ensuring that all information is readily available for decision-making and treatment planning.

  • Optimized clinical trial matching: The Lifebit Patient Management module will in 2024 further be extended by clinical trial matching capability that uses sophisticated AI algorithms to align patients with the most appropriate clinical trials based on their unique medical profiles and genomic data. This precision will go beyond the standard functionalities offered by other platforms, ensuring higher accuracy in trial matching and significantly improving the potential for patient outcomes and research effectiveness.

These capabilities highlight Lifebit's dedication to enhancing every aspect of patient management and clinical operations, setting a new standard in healthcare technology by providing comprehensive solutions that are tailored to the needs of modern medical environments.

3. Clinical Interpretation & Analytics: Sophisticated AI-driven analytics for deep clinical and molecular data interpretation.

Central to Lifebit’s Clinical Portal is the Lifebit Clinical Interpretation & Analytics module, which offers an in-depth analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) test results. This module is meticulously designed to work seamlessly with existing EHR systems, such as Cerner and Epic, providing clinicians with a robust toolset for precision medicine including:

  • Comprehensive genomic data analysis: Leveraging powerful algorithms, the Portal scrutinizes patient-specific genomic data to detect significant genetic variants that could inform therapeutic strategies.

  • Dynamic variant filtering and therapy recommendations: By accessing renowned databases such as ClinVar, COSMIC, and others, the module delivers precise therapy recommendations, streamlining the clinical decision-making process.

  • Pharmacogenomic reporting: Producing individual participant pharmacogenomic reports to guide clinicians for treatment and dosage recommendations.

  • Automated, configurable reporting: Generating real-time, dynamic clinical reports that adapt to the latest genomic insights, ensuring that all patient data is accurate and up-to-date for authorized personnel.
