The first client to adopt IBM’s new content and predictive analytics for healthcare solution was Seton Healthcare Family. Through the solution, organizations are able to extract relevant clinical information and better analyze all past data to better predict future outcomes.
With this technology, Seton aims to hone in on the root cause of hospital readmissions and ways in which it can decrease the number of patients that have multiple hospital visits.
“With this solution, we can access an integrated view of relevant clinical and operational information to drive more informed decision making,” said Charles J. Barnett, president and CEO of Seton Healthcare Family. “For example, by predicting readmission candidates, we can reduce costly and preventable readmissions, decrease mortality rates, and ultimately improve the quality of life for our patients.“
The solution allows healthcare providers to harness the vast amount of unstructured data it has in order to advance diagnosis and treatment by extracting the necessary and accurate medical fasts. The software is compatible with IBM’s Health Integration Framework allowing agencies to get more value from existing information systems investments.
