Merge Joins IBM and Watson in Medical Imaging Collaborative
Yesterday, IBM announced the creation of the Watson Health medical imaging collaborative. This global initiative unites 16 leading health systems, academic medical centers, ambulatory radiology providers and imaging technology companies – including Merge Healthcare – with the aim of assisting physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease. The members’ combined efforts will help Watson to extract insights from previously ‘invisible’ unstructured imaging data which will be combined with a variety of data from other sources. The end result may help physicians make personalized care decisions for specific patients while building a body of knowledge to benefit broader patient populations.
