Enabling the Future for Health

Because the future of health is the future for us all

Healthcare Solutions

Moving into the Cognitive Era

We’re witnessing unprecedented change in the Canadian healthcare industry. From the exponential growth in data, to the tremendous opportunity that cloud, mobile and social technologies create, the rate of change in this industry is impacting all organizations – from your doctor’s office to the largest health systems across the country. We now see evidence-based and personalized medicine becoming fast realities, with entirely new levels of engagement with patients and across care teams to greatly improve health outcomes.

Redefine what’s possible with cognitive computing

The smarter approach to healthcare is one that turns data into clinical and business insights for better outcomes. Forward-thinking organizations are connecting their healthcare data, systems and processes to facilitate secure communications and information sharing. Taking this step can help establish the foundation for innovative healthcare systems that seamlessly deliver integrated care, centered on the patient.

IBM plays a critical role in this industry – our solutions, services and innovations are enabling the future for health. With healthcare data growing rapidly, much of it unstructured, IBM has developed a new class of cognitive systems to augment the human capacity to understand – and constructively intervene into – our complex health systems, while building a cloud ecosystem for discovery, innovation and advancement into new data sources.

With insights gained from over 3,000 healthcare transformational projects around the world, IBM is enabling systems of health to become smarter, more efficient, more secure and personalized.
