IBM's MRSA Infection-Fighting Nanotechnology Caps Century of Healthcare Innovation
Date:4/7/2011

althcare is delivered around the world are critical for the health of populations and for the economic health of our communities.  

Breakthroughs in nanotechnology, gene sequencing and even innovations in chip design will continue to improve healthcare around the world.

Recognizing World Health Day, IBM is also applying its expertise to address public health issues such as in Cross River State, Nigeria. Here biometric identification and solar energy are just a few of the technologies in use to provide access to free healthcare and reduce child and maternal mortality rates by a goal of 50 percent by the end of 2011.

Through the years, IBM has created hardware and applications specifically designed to improve care, diagnosis and treatment of disease, and advance how medical knowledge is shared.

  • Working with the World Health Organization, IBM precisely mapped outbreaks of smallpox in 1976. This effort contributed to the eventual eradication of the disease in the general population a few years later.

  • In the early 1990s IBM and the University of Washington built a prototype of the first medical imaging system.

  • IBM's World Community Grid, released in 2004, continues to use pervasive networking and crowdsourcing to apply supercomputer levels of processing power to urgent healthcare and societal needs such as fighting AIDS, cancer and dengue fever and malaria.
