Oncology Insight combines the knowledge of the world’s leading oncologists with a cognitive technology platform that rapidly provides clinicians with evidence-based treatment recommendations.
Watson™ technology uses natural language processing and machine learning to reveal insights from large amounts of structured and unstructured data, as well as millions of peer-reviewed sources and clinical guidelines, to support physicians as they care for their patients.
“A doctor has this big data challenge, given the thousands of medical research studies done every year. It is humanly impossible for an oncologist to know all that information. This is about providing that insight to the oncologist for a shared decision-making process to help make sure the best treatment options are considered.”
– Kyu Rhee,
Chief health officer for IBM Watson Health.
