The Secure Health & Genomics Platform Program
Collaborating to aggregate health and genomic data on a trusted, pan-Canadian digital health platform.
Project Budget* - $3.4M
Partner Co-investment - $2.0M
Supercluster Co-investment - $1.4M
Currently, valuable data in the healthcare space is siloed with no national platform for health and genomic data. This reality is stymying the ability of researchers and clinicians to advance the development and implementation of genomic technologies and precision health initiatives.
In response, a diverse team is developing the Secure Health and Genomic Platform (SHGP) – an integrated, secure, scalable and pan-Canadian solution for genomics and precision health. This digital platform will democratize access to genomic, clinical and health information datasets to accelerate discoveries and the implementation of precision health innovation across the country. The SHGP will build a data library and an application marketplace, where users can load, search and share data.
The project team is comprised of Microsoft, DNAstack, Genome BC, LifeLabs, Molecular You, Deloitte and the University of British Columbia. British Columbia’s Ministry of Health and the Provincial Health Services Authority are also participating as advisors.
This project is accelerating the ability for Canadian innovators, researchers and health providers to work together to create innovative, more accessible precision health treatments for all Canadians.
