Cognitive Computing offers healthcare providers light at the end of the tunnel

It’s that time of year when everyone gets sick, or at least it feels that way, and desperately seeks the aid of a healthcare professional!

With the slightest change of weather, healthcare organisations are suddenly propelled into case overload. From runny noses, to minor headaches – A&E departments and GP surgeries find themselves back to back with patient cases, exposing the risk of below average care due to restricted time frames.

However, technology advances and intelligent digital innovation has revolutionised how hospitals perform and offer services worldwide – offering light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

Using Cognitive Computing, customer focused platforms encourage interactivity and enhance the patients’ experience from start to finish. This gives healthcare providers a systemic approach that reduces time, resources and radicalises coordination between patients and professionals.

IBM’s latest platform, IBM Watson, provides intelligent cognitive computing that enables next generation patient interaction; creating a system which can detect the initial warning signs of an illness, coordinate post-surgery care plans with patients, generates real-time accessibility to clinical research and predict and forecast diagnostic treatments with the touch of a button.

This revolutionary step in cognitive computing not only offers patients better management and control of their medical conditions, but generates opportunities for healthcare providers to optimise their work schedules, without getting swamped by paperwork, research or unnecessary visitations.

IBM Watson provides futuristic healthcare computing; transforming the delivery and execution of healthcare requirements in real-time. This gives patients exactly what they need and doctors what they are desperately seeking.
