Lockheed Martin has opened a center for health innovation in Baltimore to showcase data security, analytics and other technology for medical applications.
A ribbon-cutting event was held at the site and guests watched a range of health IT demonstrations, Lockheed said Wednesday.
The company also hosted a contest for students to apply science, technology, engineering and math skills in a public health research project.
“This center grows our footprint in Baltimore, offering a resource to share our expertise with customers, students and the community to work together in bending the health care cost curve and improving care for our citizens, said Stephanie Hill, president of Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions-civil business.
Lockheed works with government agencies to secure medical data, process veterans’ benefits and conduct health studies using cloud computing and analytics platforms.
