Big Data Meets Health Care On Brain Trauma
IBM, Excel Medical Electronics and the UCLA Department of Neurosurgery are experimenting with big data as a way to predict rising pressure in patients with traumatic brain injuries.
The use case highlights big data and how it can work in health care. Specifically, UCLA is testing a real-time alarm system concocted by IBM Research and Excel Medical Electronics that will stream vital signs, intracranial pressure, respiration and other items to attempt to predict trouble.
