Smarter Planet Case Studies:

Founded in 1915, Geisinger Health System serves more than two million residents in central and northeastern Pennsylvania.

Business need: Geisinger Health System sought to improve its electronic health record systems to organize information and integrate real-time clinical data with medical history. However, Geisinger lacked the resources and expertise to develop the solution internally.

Solution: IBM implemented a Clinical Decision Intelligence System (CDIS) solution that leverages the health system’s wealth of clinical data derived from its decade-long use of one of the industry’s most advanced electronic health record systems.

Benefits: Consolidates information about injuries, illnesses and finance for a comprehensive patient view, including medical history; Provides a massive storehouse of clinical information, procedure and research, enabling rapid analysis and reporting to foster best-practice care; Enables extensive, diverse medical information to be used as the basis for medical research, treatments and life-saving breakthroughs (via IBM – Geisinger Health System consolidates clinical, procedural and research data in a massive storehouse to aid
