IBM announce last week, a new investment in specialty practice EMR provider, Modernizing Medicine to speed up the adoption of Watson cognitive computer in healthcare.
The new app powered by Watson, schEMA, is designed to help dermatologists offer optimized treatment options. Using cognitive computing and natural language processing, schEMA comprehends published healthcare information, such as peer-reviewed medical journals, to allow physicians to ask questions about conditions, treatments, and outcomes and get back answers in seconds.
The goal is to strengthen physician’s recommendations and allow them to efficiently practice evidence-based medicine. The company also providers EMA for the specialties of ophthalmology, plastic surgery, orthopedics, otolaryngology and is expanding gastroenterology, urology, and rheumatology.
