IBM Big Data Software Tested For Patient Monitoring System; Nagui Halim Comments

IBMlogoThe University of California in Los Angeles has selected IBM software to analyze data gathered from brain injury patients’ bedside monitors, Information Week reported Wednesday.

Jeff Bertolucci writes the big data analytics software intends to detect changes to patient’s vital signs and potentially help prevent increases in brain pressure.

IBM Research jointly developed the software with Excel Medical Electronics Inc., according to the report.

“The ability to do continuous, real-time monitoring of patients in a clinical setting, which we’re striving for, is potentially transformative for the healthcare business,” Nagui Halim, IBM fellow and big data chief architect, told Information Week.

UCLA’s department of neurosurgery uses IBM’s InfoSphere Streams big data software and EME’s BedMasterEX analytics software, Bertolucci writes.
