Healthy, productive lives begin with
the individual at the center
IBM understands that health is influenced by many different factors and that in order to optimize health outcomes a full picture of the individual’s health is needed.
IBM Watson Health addresses this fact through building systems of care around the whole person, uncovering valuable insights into all of their determinants of health – psychological, social and clinical. Cognitive systems that understand, reason and learn are helping care managers make sense of available data, helping them expand their knowledge base, improve their productivity and deepen their expertise
Taking a holistic approach makes it possible to deliver efficient, integrated services and individualized plans - where and when it's needed - including at the point of care or on a mobile device. The goal is to improve outcomes, lower costs and drive wellness and community vitality.
