IBM (Armonk, N.Y) has launched a software technology, Spatiotemporal Epidemiological Modeler (STEM), designed to predict the transmission of diseases throughout the world to the open source community.

IBM says the technology enables the creation of epidemiological models, based on parameters such as population and geographic data, which illustrate the geographical spread of infectious diseases over time.

According to IBM, the software runs on any operating system, is available for use through the Eclipse Open Healthcare Framework Project (OHF), and is hosted at the Eclipse Foundation (Ottawa, Ontario), the non-profit foundation that guides the Eclipse open source community.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
