We identified 3 categories of innovation that may help address the current undersupply of RWE studies for NGS: (1) increasing use of RWE to inform outcomes-based contracting for new technologies, (2) precision medicine initiatives that integrate clinical and genomic data and enable data sharing, and (3) FDA reforms to encourage the use of RWE.

Aggregating multiple real-world data sources using a patient-centered health-data-sharing platform
SS Dhruva et al NPJ Digital Medicine, April 20, 2020 (Posted: Apr-21-2020 10AM)

Rights, interests and expectations: Indigenous perspectives on unrestricted access to genomic data
M Hudson et al, Nat Rev Genetics, April 7, 2020 (Posted: Apr-08-2020 8AM)

Although Indigenous experiences with genetic research have been shaped by negative interactions, there is increasing recognition that equitable benefits can only be realized through greater participation of Indigenous communities. Issues of trust, accountability and equity underpin Indigenous critiques of genetic research and the sharing of genomic data.

As Use of Genomic Data Expands in Cancer Care, Patients Share Their Stories
NCI, December 3, 2019 Brand (Posted: Dec-06-2019 8AM)

The expanding use of personal genomic data has raised questions, including: Which patients should undergo genomic testing? Who controls a person’s genomic data? What are the potential benefits and risks of sharing one’s genomic data with researchers or family members?

Members of the public in the USA, UK, Canada and Australia expressing genetic exceptionalism say they are more willing to donate genomic data.
Middleton Anna et al. European journal of human genetics : EJHG 2019 Nov (Posted: Dec-02-2019 8AM)

A framework for the investigation of rare genetic disorders in neuropsychiatry
SJ Sanders et al, Nature Medicine, September 23, 2019 (Posted: Sep-24-2019 9AM)

De novo and inherited rare genetic disorders (RGDs) are a major cause of human morbidity, frequently involving neuropsychiatric symptoms. Recent advances in genomic technologies and data sharing have revolutionized the identification and diagnosis of RGDs.

Rethinking the ethical principles of genomic medicine services
SB Johnson et al, Eur J Hum Genetics, September 18, 2019 (Posted: Sep-21-2019 1PM)

This paper examines ethical principles that should guide regulatory processes regarding consent and data sharing in this context. We argue that genomic data in a health system carries substantial societal benefits, and that the collective nature of genomics means that patients who benefit from sequencing have an ethical obligation to share health information

Leveraging European infrastructures to access 1 million human genomes by 2022
G Saunders et al, Nature Rev Genetics, August 27, 2019 (Posted: Aug-28-2019 7AM)

Human genomics is undergoing a step change from being a predominantly research-driven activity to one driven through health care as many countries in Europe now have nascent precision medicine programs. To maximize the value of the genomic data generated, these data will need to be shared between institutions and across countries

Data Sharing For Research—Encouraging Signs Amid Ethical Tensions
SP Hey, JAMA Network Open, August 21, 2019 (Posted: Aug-22-2019 7AM)

Most patients seemed to be comfortable sharing some of their health care data for the public good. So long as this willingness or consent to share data is grounded in the patient’s understanding of the history, risks, and benefits of the practice, then the broad support seems to be a great sign for the health care community.
