Focusing on healthcare analytics, business intelligence, electronic medical and health records, identity management and unified communications, the Centre will offer experiential demonstrations; architecture consultancy; proof of concept and prototype demonstrations; integration of partner solutions; and, complex solutions design.
It will also provide prototyping across areas such as RFID, telemedicine, regional and national health portals, telematics and mobile applications.
"By establishing the Centre of Excellence, we can enable our clients to build collaborative, co-ordinated healthcare systems and electronic medical records that stimulate integration and efficiency," said Francois Commagnac, Leader, Global Healthcare Centre of Excellence, IBM. "As an increasing number of clients seek to implement instrumented, interconnected and intelligent systems, the Centre is an ideal environment in which to experience and demonstrate the value of Smarter Healthcare."
Elsewhere in Europe, IBM drives healthcare innovation at its Zurich Research Laboratory. Researchers at Zurich successfully developed the Anatomic and Symbolic Mapper Engine (ASME), which enables doctors to navigate a 3D virtual map of the human body and access medical information graphically. ASME is currently being piloted at the Thy-Mors hospital in northern Denmark.
