In the next 10 years, data and the ability to analyze them will do for doctors’ minds what X-ray and medical imaging have done for their vision. How? By turning data into actionable information. Take, for instance, IBM’s intelligent supercomputer, Watson. Watson can analyze the meaning and con-text of human language and quickly process vast amounts of information. With this information, it can suggest options targeted to a patient’s specific circumstances. This technology can help physicians and nurses identify the most effective courses of treatment for their patients, and it is an almost immediate process. In less than 3 seconds, Watson can sift through the equivalent of about 200 million pages, evaluate the information, and provide precise responses. With medical information doubling every 5 years, advanced health analytic systems technologies like this can help improve patient care through the delivery of up-to-date, evidence-based health care.
