Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM is unveiling its Health Analytics Solution Center, part of a network designed to address the growing demand for advanced analytics needed to help healthcare providers improve decision-making and provide higher quality care.

Data from the center, which will be located in Dallas, will be collected and analyzed from sensors, patient monitoring systems, medical instruments and handheld devices and applied to assist providers with disease management, hospital quality improvement, patient population studies and performance reporting, says the company. By providing this information, IBM aims to help hospitals and other healthcare companies reduce risk, predict trends and improve patient satisfaction, it says.

IBM is also opening six other analytics solution centers in Berlin, Beijing, Tokyo, New York, London and Washington, D.C.
