Healthcare researchers use smarter insights to find life-saving solutions


Researchers at the University of Montana were interested in preventing epilepsy in patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries. As they began to gather data, they realized how crucial it was to be able to analyze this massive amount of data in a short period of time.

They turned to IBM InfoSphere for their solution. Now, the researchers are able to track patients in a whole new way--creating a new era in healthcare management.
