IBM Bolsters Scientific Research to Improve Healthcare Quality and Costs

Here's a video that was published back in July titled, "IBM Bolsters Scientific Research to Improve Healthcare Quality and Costs"

IBM is enlisting some of the company's leading scientists and technologists to help medical practitioners and insurance companies provide high-quality, evidence-based care to patients. As part of this initiative, IBM is collaborating with clinicians in numerous medical institutions and hiring medical doctors to work alongside its researchers to develop new technologies, scientific advancements, and business processes for healthcare and insurance providers.

Dedicating $100 million over the next three years, the initiative will draw on IBM's leadership in systems integration, services research, cloud computing, analytics and emerging scientific areas -- such as nanomedicine and computational biology -- to drive innovations that empower practitioners to focus their efforts on patient care.
