Improving Healthcare With Data Analytics: Technology Alone Isn’t The Answer

Presiding over the ceremonial opening of the new IBM Watson Health global headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., IBM’s senior vice president Mike Rhodin highlighted the sometime-neglected focus of the effort to mine the ever-increasing quantities of health data. “We know that technology alone isn’t the answer,” said Rhodin. “At its core, Watson Health provides the means to orient the entire system around us.” “We have to do it as a community,” Mike Rohdin declared at the event. Other participants, executives from Yale University, Sage Bionetworks, Medtronic, CVS Health, Modernizing Medicine and Teva Pharmaceuticals, echoed the sentiment. And Like Rhodin, they stressed putting people at the center of their efforts to improve healthcare, highlighting the specific goal of helping patients manage their disease.
