Jun 14, 2022 10:00 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syapse®, a leading real-world evidence company announced with Pierian®, a global leader in advanced clinical genomics technology, a new joint collaboration that will benefit patients of the AdventHealth Cancer Institute in Central Florida. The collaboration combines Syapse’s real-world evidence solutions designed to improve outcomes for patients with cancer, Pierian’s leading-edge clinical genomics workflow, and precision medicine services that provide the most relevant insights in the industry.

This partnership will enable AdventHealth clinicians to offer more comprehensive diagnostics for oncology patients in Central Florida, allowing more personalized treatment options due to improved capabilities to identify known and emerging biomarkers critical for cancer treatment and progression. It will also enable more efficient identification of clinical trials and treatment options for patients based on their molecular testing results and similar patients in the Syapse Learning Health Network (LHN). Syapse and Pierian will collaborate on optimizing AdventHealth’s internal genomic testing capabilities for all patients who may benefit to improve the actionable insights gathered from test orders and genomic results allowing a deeper understanding of the relationship between these insights and real patient outcomes.

Syapse’s oncology platform enables precision medicine across large health systems, placing the power of real-world evidence in the hands of oncologists, allowing them to consider how specific treatments have worked for patients around the country, and to make more informed decisions about the treatment journey of their own patients.

“Increasingly, cancer care is tailored not just to the primary cancer type, but to the uniqueness of each person – a result of the transformative insights in genetics and genomics,” said Thomas Brown, MD, MBA, chief medical officer of Syapse. “But making the most of these insights means having enough data to achieve the precision patients expect, that’s why bringing in real-world data that goes beyond a single health care delivery site is so vitally important.”

Pierian partners with clinicians and medical facilities worldwide to establish high-quality clinical genomics programs and a global sharing network. With advanced interpretation technology connected to the most comprehensive knowledge base, Pierian’s adaptive learning algorithms make intelligent associations between comprehensive datasets and individual patient results. Post analysis and interpretation, clinical reports are easy to generate which empowers providers with genomic insights to fulfill the promise of precision care.

“Our mission at Pierian is to improve patient access to genomic testing and drive clinical adoption of next-generation sequencing in communities everywhere,” said Mark McDonough, CEO of Pierian. “This collaboration allows AdventHealth to continue to leverage our robust knowledge base, generate patient-specific genomic data, and then combine these datasets with real-world evidence from Syapse to complete the clinical picture for their onsite NGS program and all AdventHealth cancer patients.”  

Together, this collaboration brings together the complementary strengths of three leaders in precision oncology, genetic testing, and real-world evidence creating new opportunities for better insights and outcomes for cancer patients.
