The public sector is changing the face of our cities, transforming our workforce and improving healthcare with data and analytics. Here are some of the stories and articles that caught my attention this week.
Recent regulations for medical devices and the burgeoning opportunities from Internet of Things data is expected to dramatically transform healthcare and lifestyle, and the electronics industry is taking notice.
As healthcare leaders face pressure to control costs and drive better outcomes, they're using predictive analytics to anticipate a range of factors from patient demand and staffing to scheduling and volume.
IBM Analytics solutions enable healthcare organizations to connect disparate information into a single trusted view and deliver insights into data. The industry-leading accuracy and performance of IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management is at the heart of a big data & analytics strategy. Armed
Together, IBM and Coriell Life Sciences have teamed up to create a near real-time tool for physicians based on genome sequencing. Using complex genome data, physicians can extract meaningful information about a specific patient to create better, more personalized treatment plans.
Learn how big data
Streaming data from multiple medical devices can give doctors better near real-time information about their patients. Using IBM InfoSphere and big data, doctors can look at multiple data streams to dive deeper into patient data and gain more insight.
Data is growing and moving faster than healthcare organizations can consume it, yet getting insights from that data into the hands of practitioners can quite literally make the difference between life and death.
Computational modeling has revolutionized all branches of the physical sciences, engineering and design. Leading-edge work in these fields is pushing new computational frontiers at nano scales. Computation-centric methods allow researchers to model, simulate and assess a much wider array of options
This past summer we witnessed an incredible phenomenon seemingly capturing the world by storm: The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Facebook estimates 28 million people posted about ALS between June 1 and August 28, including comments and tags. 2.4 million videos also were created on YouTube, spreading
Big data analytics aren’t just for big organizations or big cities. In fact big data analytics can be especially useful when the data in question is diffuse—spread out over a number of small facilities and then aggregated to identify trends and patterns that might otherwise be overlooked.
Wearable cognitive prosthetics sounds like science fiction, but it’s easily within the reach of today’s technology. From a healthcare analytics standpoint, image-analytics wearables could help many people who suffer from diverse memory, perception and learning impairments.
Now that the Ebola virus is sitting in our backyard, the entire country is on high alert—and rightfully so, as it's no longer a disease that's plaguing people continents away, in little known countries. WHO indicates that there are 9216 Ebola cases with 4555 deaths. My first thought when I look at
The invisible spread of infections in healthcare facilities has continued to run rampant. Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) remain a serious threat everywhere in the world. Nevertheless, pathogen-caused infections, though they spread invisibly in healthcare environments, can be illuminated
