IBM Analytics System to Manage Records for Seattle Children’s Hospital

IBM logoA children’s hospital has deployed an IBM analytics system intended to help doctors and nurses run queries on medical data within seconds and gain insights into data points for each patient.

Seattle Children’s Hospital worked with Brightlight Consulting to deploy IBM’s PureData System for Analytics, IBM said Thursday.

“Working with Brightlight and using the IBM big data system, we are able to fully understand the hospital’s ‘big data’ – the thousands of data points associated with each child – immediately, as needed,” said Wendy Soethe, manager of enterprise data warehouse at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

IBM says the platform offers the hospital’s clinicians a look at common traits of medications so they can use a tailored approach for managing diseases.

The system is designed to compile large amounts of data from electronic medical records as well as billing and general ledger systems at the hospital.
