IBM Unveils New Public Health Data Sharing Technology

IBM Corporation has come up with yet another innovative technology solution, with an aim to transform healthcare. The newly launched solution, Public Health Information Affinity Domain (PHIAD), a Web-based portal, is focused on providing a platform for quick electronic exchange and analysis of critical public health information. The company has developed the solution in association with Nuclear Threat Initiative’s (NTI) Global Health Security Initiative (GHSI) and Middle East Consortium on Infectious Disease Surveillance (MECIDS). MECIDS, an organization for promoting long-term health, stability and security in the Middle East, will be the first adopter of the new IBM PHIAD. The partners are looking to promote deployments at international level, in order to have a standard automated system for surveillance that would help contain and counter the effects of infectious disease outbreaks.
