FAQs


How is the GO software suite deployed - can it reside behind our firewall?

Yes, the platform can be installed locally in your own environment or in HIPAA compliant cloud instance. GO is extremely flexible and will work within your privacy and security parameters.

Do you support multiple test modes (NGS, CNV, Gene Fusions, Cytogenetics, IHC, Immunologic markers, etc.)?

Yes, we are able to support integration with multiple test modes (CNV, Gene Fusions, Cytogenetics, IHC, etc) to create a comprehensive, longitudinal look at a patient's medical record to provide informed decision support from pathology sign-out through point of care.

Can the Precision Oncology Platform (POP) be used within our institution as well as with affiliated networks?

Yes. The GO tools are web-based, and therefore can be used across an intranet or Virtual Private Network on the Internet. Users are configured to have unique access through credential based access systems and can be managed by the institution using the administration console maintaining HIPAA compliance and privacy based on rules you create in each user role.

Can any of the GO software suite components be incorporated into our workflow?

Yes. The GO Tumor Board was designed to support a fully integrated workflow from case creation to recommendations report sign-off by an oncologist and, in conjunction with other GO tools, for large scale analysis of data analyzed through the application.

Is the GO software suite able to incorporate sequencing data from a variety of sources and vendors?

Yes, The GenomOncology software has the ability to recognize and parse the specific formats of raw or filtered .vcf files from any number of sources. We also have extensive experience working with custom pipelines and can accommodate any format your sequencing pipeline outputs. We are currently working with over 17 customers supporting a diverse array of over 200 configured panels.

Does GO Precision Oncology Platform (POP) allow for integration of different sources of data to enable decision support?

Yes, integrating with external systems is a strength of ours. GO POP and the underlying GO KMS data model allows for integration and interpretation of patient variant and biomarker information. Our software also enables upload and modification of image files, PDFs, etc. We can also accommodate integration with radiology platforms or utilization of DICOM data.

Can you integrate with other data sources - ie., Oncore, data warehouses, repositories?

We currently integrate with OnCore data by ingesting “reports” generated from the OnCore system. We are currently planning a full API-level integration with Oncore at a premier academic cancer center and expect that we would be able to utilize this feature as part of any implementation. We can also integrate via API into your own data warehouse or repository.

Can you integrate biomarker results directly into the EHR?

Yes. We have successfully integrated discrete biomarker results as structured data into an instance of Epic EHR. We did this using HL7 2.5 messages meaning that an upgrade to FHIR is not a necessity for this type of integration.

What happens to our data for the duration of the agreement and upon termination?

Your data remains your data. The majority of our customers host our software suite on premise so the data never leaves your own environment. If you choose to host in the GO Cloud instance, upon termination, GO will return all of your data.

Can we load our own rules and standardizations into the KMS to comply with our institution's care pathways?

Yes. Any client may enter their own clinical pathways into GO KMS. Our system is very flexible to handle a number of "rules". Our standard therapy and prognosis recommendations are populated from FDA, NCCN, ASCO and MCG guidelines contained within the GO KMS.
