IBM Watson Hard At Work: New Breakthroughs Transform Quality Care for Patients
Date:2/8/2013

New WellPoint Interactive Care Guide and Interactive Care Reviewer

  • Delivers the first Watson-based cognitive computing system anticipated to streamline the review processes between a patients' physician and their health plan, potentially speeding approvals from utilization management professionals, reducing waste and helping ensure evidence-based care is provided. 
  • Expected to accelerate accepted testing and treatment by shortening pre-authorization approval time, which means that patients are moving forward with the first crucial step toward treatment more quickly.
  • Analyzes treatment requests and matches them to WellPoint's medical policies and clinical guidelines to present consistent, evidence-based responses for clinical staff to review, in the anticipation of providing faster, better informed decisions about a patient's care.
  • WellPoint has deployed Interactive Care Reviewer to a select number of providers in the midwest, and believes more than 1,600 providers will be using the product by the end of the year.

Watson: Then and Now
The IBM Watson system gained fame by beating human contestants on the television quiz show Jeopardy! almost two years ago. Since that time, Watson has evolved from a first-of-a-kind status, to a commercial cognitive computing system gaining a 240 percent improvement in system performance,  and a reduction in the system's physical requirements by 75 percent and can now be run on a single Power 750 server. 

The transformational technology, named after IBM founder Thomas J. Watson , was developed in IBM's Research Labs. Using advances in natural language processing and analytics, the Watson technology can process information similar to the way people think, representing a significant shift in the ability for organizations to quickly analyze, understand and respond to vast amounts of Big Data
