A new chapter

Healthcare is ready to imagine a new future. We know we can do better than fractured systems and disparate information.

The last couple of years have shown us our collective capacity for change and resilience. It’s the right time for the industry to reimagine itself.

It’s a complex task, because it’s not enough to aggregate data from different siloes. It requires more than simply the secure exchange of health data, but also the application of advanced analytics and AI to generate insights.

Watson Health wants to be part of the solution. That’s why we’re dedicated to putting knowledge in the hands of the people who need it – whether clinicians, administrators or patients – so we can move forward, together.

To that end, as recently announced, we are starting a new chapter.

What will stay the same

Essential combination of technology + expertise

To drive shared progress in health, we believe in the essential combination of technology and human experience.

We’ll continue to deliver advanced technology and deep expertise in healthcare. Since Watson Health’s inception, we have helped healthcare digitally transform and apply advanced technologies, including AI.
