IBM AND PREMIER:WORKING COLLABORATIVELY TO IMPROVE POPULATION HEALTH...

IBM AND PREMIER:WORKING COLLABORATIVELY TO IMPROVE POPULATION HEALTH
IBM and Premier are building a data platform to provide clinical decision support at the point of care delivery, helping doctors, nurses and other providers make faster, better decisions about how to treat each individual patient.We are collaborating to gain insight, measure performance and improve population health. Information in this format can be used to measure a range
of healthcare trends and opportunities, including costs, harm, readmissions, comparative effectiveness, etc. IBM and Premier will extend this type of new insight to all hospitals in the nation, especially those who don’t have the ability to do this on their own.
