In addition, more than 14,700 hours of hands-on training was spent by nurses who meticulously trained Watson.   Watson continues to learn while on the job, much like a medical resident, while working with the WellPoint nurses who originally conducted its training.

Watson started processing common, medical procedure requests by providers for members in WellPoint affiliated health plans in December, and was expanded to include five provider offices in the Midwest.  Watson will serve as a powerful tool to accelerate the review process between a patient's physician and their health plan.
