Lockheed Martin has formed a healthcare technology alliance to consolidate the health information technology services of partners such as academic institutions and medical technology firms.

The company said Wednesday group members include Cisco, Cloudera, Illumina, Intel and Montgomery College.

Alliance members will work to develop technology services for efforts to protect patient data, extract results from genomic research and apply big data tools to public health initiatives.

“Through collaboration between health IT industry and academic partners, this team will develop and refine technologies that will help guide decisions for care, diagnosis and treatment of disease while protecting critical health information,“ said Horace Blackman, vice president of health and life sciences at Lockheed.

Lockheed and Illumina have already started work on genomics programs.
