Doctor Evidence Brings Valuable Health Data to IBM Watson Ecosystem

Doctor Evidence, a clinical health research data provider, announced a content partnership with IBM Watson to contribute valuable clinical cancer research content to Watson's oncology solutions and developer ecosystem. The partnership is part of IBM's work to help the medical community advance patient-centered care through its new Watson Health unit.

To date, IBM's Watson for Oncology solution has ingested nearly 15 million pages of medical content, including over 200 medical textbooks and 300 medical journals. Doctor Evidence brings more than a decade of experience in rigorous evidence-based medical methodologies and technologies to the Watson Ecosystem. The organization will contribute 2 million additional data points from highly structured, peer-reviewed content, including thousands of clinical papers, conference proceedings, abstracts on remissions, patient survival cases, epidemiology, and drug label data from the U.S. and Europe. This medical information will be added to Watson's existing corpus of health data that includes content from partners such as the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Cancer.gov, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among others.
