International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) announced that many IBM U.S. employees fighting cancer will be able to tap into Watson for insights into their cancer treatment as well as potential clinical trial options. Through a unique collaboration with Best Doctors, an expert clinical consultation provider, qualifying IBMers and their family members will have access to Watson’s suite of oncology offerings for insights on cancer treatment options, when covered under IBM’s U.S. medical plan. The benefit will be available as of January 1, 2017.
With the patient’s permission, the Best Doctors team will collect medical records and feed relevant data into Watson. Watson will then generate a report, which will be reviewed by world-renowned expert oncologists in the Best Doctors network. The final assessment will be provided to the patient and their treating oncologist.
“For anyone receiving the diagnosis, or supporting a loved one through it, cancer can be overwhelming,” said Kyu Rhee, MD, chief health officer, IBM Watson Health. “Now a second opinion staffed by the powerful combination of Watson and world-renowned oncologists in the Best Doctors network is readily available. With this first-ever U.S. rollout of the technology, the full breadth and depth of Watson’s services can benefit an entire population of individuals who need them.”
