IBM has made significant inroads over the past year, along with some leading Healthcare partners, to leverage the computational power of Watson and its natural language processing with a goal to develop outcome and evidence-based decision support systems. Dr Martin Kohn, who is leading IBM’s efforts to apply Watson to Healthcare, will address a Watson-enabled future where technology can help Healthcare organizations turn clinical and business data into actionable insights for better outcomes.
