UCLA Relies On Breakthrough 'Big Data' Technology From IBM To Help Patients With Traumatic Brain Injuries

"The field of big data analytics is evolving to include new kinds of data from sources such as medical monitors, giving us insights into patients that weren't previously possible," said Martin Kohn, MD, chief medical scientist, IBM Research. "We believe that UCLA's promising research may one day transform the way that doctors and nurses interact with patients inside the neuro-intensive care unit."

"Through its research, UCLA is changing the way that analytics may eventually be used inside hospitals, and how we think about using data to improve patient outcomes," said John Hoffman, President, Excel Medical Electronics. "We hope that teaming Excel Medical Electronics and IBM analytics technologies with UCLA's expertise will lead to new ways to save lives."

EME develops innovative clinical and research software for hospital patient monitoring systems. The company's flagship BedMasterEx platform is in use by more than 80 percent of the top ranked medical centers and children's hospitals in America.

The UCLA Brain Injury Research Center and the UCLA Stroke Center are among the world's leaders in the diagnosis, treatment and management of vascular diseases of the brain, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury.

The UCLA Department of Neurosurgery is committed to providing the most comprehensive patient care through innovative clinical programs in minimally invasive brain and spinal surgery; neuroendoscopy; neuro-oncology for adult and pediatric brain tumors; cerebrovascular surgery; stereotactic radiosurgery for brain and spinal disorders; surgery for movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease; and epilepsy surgery. For 21 consecutive years, the department has been ranked among the top neurosurgery programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, including No. 1 in Los Angeles and No. 2 on the West Coast.
