Real-Time Analysis for Intensive Care

It is no secret that healthcare worldwide is in crisis - high costs, poor or inconsistent quality, and inaccessibility are potentially catastrophic. For example, Healthcare in Ontario is expected to account for 50% of government spending by 2011. And in China, 39% of the rural population and 36% of the urban population cannot afford professional medical treatment. While there is no limit to the amount of data continuously being generated in provider organizations, what they lack is a way to analyze, correlate and fuse these different types of data in real time - which in many cases could be the difference between life and death for patients they serve.
