 My name is Grant Wood. I am the Sr. Information Technology Strategist
for the Clinical Genetics Institute at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt
Lake City, Utah. I was formerly the  Director of IT for a 2,800 member
IPA in Arizona, and have written articles and presented at conferences
on the emerging technologies in healthcare - the future of which will be
genetic-based systems.

The Clinical Genetics Institute was developed to manage clinically
applicable genetic advances, develop new genetic intervention protocols,
and learn how to apply genetic information to disease prevention and
treatment. The Institute will operate on a system-wide basis, but be
based at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City. By operating throughout the
entire Intermountain Healthcare system, we will be able to integrate
with Intermountain Healthcare's best-practice approach, interact with
physicians from a variety of clinical backgrounds, and utilize the
wealth of information Intermountain Healthcare has accumulated through
past research and treatment protocols.

Our group is new and small, but with a large task ahead of us - to
develop a clinical genomic services program. My job is to provide the
information technology strategy. In a nutshell, my mission is to develop
a computer-based clinical genomics system. By linking genomic data and
family medical history data to the patient electronic medical record,
the Clinical Genetics Institute will provide advanced genetic-based
diagnostic tools to the clinician, and high-quality, personalized care
to the patient.

I look forward to learning from the vast knowledge and experience of
this group.
