IBM, Epic, Carilion Clinic Team For Predictive Care Project; Sean Hogan Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

StethescopeonKeyboardIBM has collaborated with medical software provider Epic and Virginia-based Carilion Clinic on a pilot program that leveraged an IBM predictive analytics technology to detect people at risk of heart failure.

Carilion Clinic personnel used IBM’s Advanced Care Insights platform to analyze unstructured files from the organization’s electronic medical records system and identify hundreds of at-risk patients during the pilot experiment, IBM said Wednesday.

Sean Hogan, IBM vice president for global healthcare, said the team intends for clients to use unstructured data when making interventions against potential medical complications.

According to IBM, the medical analytics model worked to detect heart failure risks with an 85 percent accuracy rate.

Advanced Care Insights is built with natural language processing features that work to extract insights from large volumes of data.

IBM also offers a content analysis software product that is intended to integrate with Epic’s EMR platform.
