The City of Hope Center for Precision Medicine has designed and implemented technology solutions to overcome the challenges that are ubiquitous to all healthcare and academic research institutions. To that end, City of Hope created an enterprise-wide data lake technology platform and precision medicine program called POSEIDON (Precision Oncology Software Environment Interoperable Data Ontologies Network). By combining patient data with comprehensive molecular profiling and proprietary analytics, City of Hope is now able to deliver patient-specific insights based on real world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE).
