Developing a Roadmap for Genomics in an Integrated Chart: Challenges & Opportunities
Sharing our journey of the challenges and opportunities in leveraging genomic results in an integrated chart
Gillian C. Bell, Pharm.D., is Interim Director of the Mission Personalized Medicine Program and Assistant Professor of Clinical Education in the Division of Practice Advancement and Clinical Education at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. She completed her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy and two years of post-graduate training in Clinical Pharmacy and Clinical Pharmacogenetics at the Memphis VAMC and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, respectively. At Mission Health, she is focused on the use of pharmacogenomics in routine healthcare to help optimize the efficacy and safety of drug therapy. This includes helping providers with interpretation and application of pharmacogenomic test results in clinical care, creating the necessary information technology infrastructure to deliver pharmacogenomics to providers in the electronic health record, counseling patients about pharmacogenomic results and how they affect current and future medication therapy, and educating clinicians and patients through workshops and community presentations. Additionally, she serves as a member of numerous national and international working groups focusing on implementation of pharmacogenomics in clinical care.
