An Expanding List of Tier 1 Genomic Applications: Evidence-based Guidelines for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Public Health
MA Burke et al, CDC Blog, October 6,2021

The CDC Tier-Classified Guideline Database includes three Tier 1 guidelines on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). A 2014 guideline from the European Society of Cardiology, a 2017 guideline from the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society, and a 2020 guideline from the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology all recommend genetic testing for patients meeting diagnostic criteria for HCM. Each includes recommendations for evaluation of family history, cascade genetic testing in relatives, and genetic counseling of affected individuals.

Reinvigorating Family Health History in the Era of Genomics
CDC Webinar, November 18, 2021

This seminar will address current efforts to improve data collection on family health history from consumers and clinicians and how this information can be added to electronic medical records. Speakers will discuss how public health can address the growing need for guidance as clinicians and consumers struggle with how to implement genomics into clinical care and highlight international family health history efforts.

Resources in Genomics and Precision Health to Enhance Public Health Impact of New Technologies
CDC slide set, 2021

The presentation reviews the CDC Public Health Genomics and Precision Health Knowledge Base (PHGKB), a suite of searchable databases that includes publications and other resources. It includes: 1) COVID Genomics and Precision Health, a database that includes publications and other resources about the impact of genomics and precision health technologies on the investigation and control of COVID-19; 2) My Family Health Portrait, a family health history collection tool that allows users to save and share their family health history information; and 3) Specialized PHGKB databases such as reproductive and child health, family health history, and health equity.
