Squeezing Inefficiency from Pubic Sector Health Programs, IBM Watson Health Uses AI to Deliver Superior Services.
Government health and human services agencies are turning to emerging technology to tame an old foe: poor data management. The problem exists as data silos, unstructured data and inadequate sharing of data across programs. Eager to transform delivery of social programs that serve the most vulnerable, at-risk communities, agencies are taking steps to better manage data as a means of improving the delivery of social programs. To that end, many of them are turning to robust technologies such as modularity, platform as a service, hybrid cloud and artificial intelligence, harnessing the value embedded in data and squeezing out programmatic inefficiency.
For 25 years, IBM has worked globally to solve the challenges of social and health programs, serving almost 1,000 government agencies in 19 different countries. IBM Watson Health brings together an unrivaled track record in the social and health services with the most powerful AI-enabled platform for managing data in health and human services environments.
