Doctors at Emory University want to predict the future. Or at least get as close as they can, using real-time patient data streaming from a team-up with IBM and Excel Medical Electronics.
The new system, currently in a research stage, will allow clinicians to better direct the deluge of data each patient in the ICU produces. Excel Medical collects data from physiologic monitors and makes it available to other systems, while IBM Infosphere Streams takes in, analyzes and correlates that information, from up to thousands of sources. Together, the systems will combine to help clinicians make sense of patient data as it happens.
