A supercomputer like IBM’s Watson is needed to be able to analyze the large number of detailed records needed to “develop patient treatment protocols, personalize patient management for chronic conditions, and intelligently assist doctors and nurses by providing relevant evidence from the worldwide body of medical knowledge, putting new insight into the hands of clinical staff.” The key to the success would be able to share and analyze patient-specific data in real time, a part of the standard workflow. This will allow Watson to “bring forth critical evidence from medical literature and case studies that are most relevant to the patient’s care.”
