What is Project Alvearie?

Innovation in healthcare is a team effort. 

With Project Alvearie, IBM is bringing together contributors from across the health and life sciences ecosystem to collaborate around common and pervasive challenges that prevent seamless health data ingestion and flow.

Our goal is to empower organizations to better leverage health data and analytics so that they can build solutions to help improve care delivery and operate more efficiently in a highly regulated environment.
