The Healthcare Systems and Analytics Research department is a multi-disciplinary team of scientists conducting research in the broad area of health informatics. Our mission is to provide the scientific underpinnings that enable IBM have an active presence in the area of health informatics. We develop innovative technologies in the following areas:
The following figure describes our overall research foci:
As seen in this figure, we are interested in deriving insights and evidence from the collective patient data generated by the elements of the healthcare eco-system (e.g. a provider institution), personalize/tailor those insights to the needs of a given patient or member, and feed such information to serve various end points, for in-patient, out-patient and wellness type of applications in the care and wellness management continuum.
We conduct our research in close collaboration with our external collaborators, who represent different constituencies in the healthcare eco-system. Our team has collective background and deep expertise in the following areas: data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, information retrieval, information visualization and visual analytics, multimedia content analysis, medical imaging, optimization, service design, statistics / bio-statistics, data security, systems development, medicine, and medical informatics.
We are active in the scientific community and lead, organize and publish in many scientific conferences and journals. To learn more, read about our group, our projects, and our publications.
We have 1 job opening for a postdoctoral position. Interested candidates should apply and also send a note to Shahram Ebadollahi (email@example.com).
