IBM Watson Health Aids Tiatros with Patient Information

tiatros1Watson is the first commercially available cognitive computing which analyzes high volumes of data, understands complex questions posed in natural language, and proposes evidence-based answers. Watson continuously learns, gaining in value and knowledge over time, from previous interactions. In April 2015, IBM Watson Health and the Watson Health Cloud platform was launched. The new unit aims to improve the ability of doctors, researchers and insurers to innovate by surfacing insights from the massive amount of personal health data being created and shared daily. The Watson Health Cloud will allow this information to be shared and combined with a dynamic and constantly growing aggregated view of clinical, research and social health data

Tiatros recently announced that it has joined the IBM Watson Ecosystem, hoping to leverage Watson to analyze personality insights for more personalized treatment.

In 2010 Tiatros joined forces with experts at UCSF Medical Center to use the technologies that are fueling the continued explosive growth of social media to create a new technology platform to allow collaboration in patient-centric health care. It utilizes what it calls ‘carepods’ which are secure mobile health clouds for each patient  where all of the patient’s doctors can access the patient’s clinical information through the cloud on their laptops, tablets, phones and other devices from anywhere, and at any time – and within a HIPAA compliant environment.

With the partnership with IBM’s Watson, patient data is entered in increments of 2,000 words through an essay format or using the most recent text messages from a patient and Watson can analyze the information to accurately assess the personality traits, human values and needs of a patient.

This initiative is just another in the long list of mHealth and Interoperability initiatives that are emerging each day in the healthcare field.
