Title of Collaborative Activity:

Improving Genomics/Omics Technical Standards and Molecular Tools for Prebiotic Probiotic Research and Development Working Group

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The overarching workgroup effort is to enhance research initiatives/resource development as an Interagency Agreement ( IAA) workgroup members committed to sustain and accelerate translatability of validation analytics and reference datasets using omics and other multi-omics substitutable [SMART] tools, devices, and HL-7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) technologies to support rapid and efficient interoperability with electronic health records and clinical decision support systems. A second goal is to coordinate and plan trans-NIH and Inter-agency meetings, workshops and initiatives with greater efficiency of Institute and Center Operations (ICO) resources and expertise between agencies. Innovative technologies like HL-7 SMART on FHIR have been demonstrated to enhance health information exchange, affordably and accurately. Novel device monitoring using reference standards including, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Precision and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) nanofabrication, multi-omics and modeling strategies can be integrated to improve validation and standards biosafety, risk monitoring of adverse drug events, food safety, overuse and resistance to antibiotics, and emerging infection. The intent originated in April 2016 with an Initiative planning meeting that is now ongoing for IAA partnered with the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI); other IAA collaboratives in progress.
