Australian Genomics has completed the full report for the NAGIM Implementation Recommendations and delivered it to the Australian Department of Health.

An important part of the report is the recognition that “engaging with industry to contribute to health genomics will be critical to the scalability and sustainability of NAGIM”.

Importantly, InGeNA’s ongoing role in realising the vision of a national approach to genomic information management is called out:

“Collaboration between the NAGIM co-ordinating entity and InGeNA as a collective, will circumvent conflicts and risks of bilateral relationships with any one commercial entity. InGeNA representation across the Workstreams is recommended to achieve the industry engagement, involvement and participation. Effective and trusted partnerships across industry, research, government and healthcare will collectively be critical to the successful implementation of a NAGIM for Australia.”
