GenoVic a finalist in iAwards

Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance’s shared clinical system for genomics, GenoVic, has been recognised as a Finalist in the 2020 Victorian iAwards.

Hosted by the Australian Information Industry Association, the iAwards are Australia's longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, promoting excellence in the Australian digital ecosystem from the likes of Google Maps, Atlassian, Wotif and WiseTech Global.

“Many congratulations to all the winners and finalists. It is exciting for everyone involved in GenoVic to be nominated a finalist, amongst such inspiring and innovative solutions,” said Dr Natalie Thorne, Innovation and Technology Lead for Melbourne Genomics.

Developed by and for the 10 members of Melbourne Genomics, GenoVic is a world-leading all-in-one solution that manages, analyses and stores the data generated by genomic testing. GenoVic is the first system globally to perform all these functions in genomics, using common architecture standards, shared across multiple, independent organisations.

“Genomic testing is increasingly informing medical care and resulting in better care for patients. We are proud to be at the forefront of designing and building a unique system that underpins processing of this complex testing and manages the big data created,” said Dr Thorne.

“Recognition for GenoVic honours the work of the many, many experts involved. This work is made possible through active collaboration between the Melbourne Genomics members and the support of the Victorian Government.”

GenoVic is now supporting test delivery at five laboratories in Victoria: Victorian Clinical Genetics Services, The Royal Melbourne Hospital, Monash Health, the Australian Genome Research Facility and one laboratory external to the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance (Alfred Health).
