“Through the increased use of electronic health record systems at hospitals and clinics nationwide, healthcare providers are challenged with maximizing the value of their investment, while also trying to find ways to better understand the significant amount of complex data they now have,” said Steve Comber, senior vice president and general manager for health solutions.

Potential uses of the portfolio include detecting electronic financial fraud, disease diagnosis, medical research, brand protection, geospatial tracking, energy consumption optimization, data storage and query, real-time analytics and alerts, data set modeling and summarizing and time-based model trending.

Public, private and hybrid cloud environments host the data for clients to detect, predict and classify, SAIC said.
