The SMART Genomics API is a means to classify and package genomic information for the use in the clinical realm. With the influx of data supporting personalized genetic medicine, a need arises to accommodate the use of this information in the electronic medical record, by point-of-care providers. Since a clinical API has been defined and supported by the SMART clinical initiative, it is natural to model the use of genomic data in a way similar to this established method.
A number of use cases were developed in order to demonstrate the ease of use and interoperability of the SMART API. A description of each can be found here: http://smartgenomics.wikispaces.com/Overview+and+Use+Cases
