Full Story:             
Partners HealthCare and EMC Corporation (NYSE:  EMC) today announced collaborative efforts to improve the delivery of Healthcare and the lives of patients by developing an agile data and analytics platform, The Partners Data Lake.  The objective of The Partners Data Lake is to speed clinically relevant research developed across the Partners HealthCare system into the clinical setting. Insights derived from The Partners Data Lake will also be used to inform medical science to help make research more efficient, improving the diagnosis and treatment of disease and ultimately making health care more cost effective. Leveraging the advanced medical diagnostics capabilities throughout the Partners HealthCare system, large amounts of data generated through separate research activities will now be brought together within The Partners Data Lake to enable the medical community to explore and develop new insights into human disease to improve diagnostics, treatment and the lives of patients.

The advent of personalized medicine and advancements in technology have changed the medical field. Treatments are accelerated thanks to personalized medicine and the advancing rate of medical research. At the same time, medical research has shifted towards a collaborative approach as technology advancements eliminate physical boundaries. Now, physicians can collaborate with researchers to develop the best methods of care and personalized treatments regardless of their location.

Partners plans to expand its enterprise research IS capabilities with the development of a unique new research analytics platform.  The Partners Data Lake will be built with products from across the EMC Federation of strategically aligned businesses, including EMC Information Infrastructure, VMware, Pivotal and RSA. The new Partners Data Lake will support research and clinical activities across the Partners system that includes the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network and their community hospitals.  Development and implementation of the Partners Data Lake will begin immediately.
