Merge Healthcare will turbocharge IBM's Watson via Watson Health Cloud

Watson can deep dive and see everything health related with the exhaustive database from Merge Healthcare.

Watson is very good at image analytics and has cognitive abilities. Combine this with Merge Healthcare's Medical Imaging Management Platform and you have a great system to unlock the hidden information in the medical images to offer the patients and medical providers greater insight into health related issues. IBM likely to acquire Medical Healthcare was announced recently.

This is a quote from Merge Healthcare site

"Merge’s technology platforms are used at more than 7,500 U.S. healthcare sites, as well as most of the world’s leading clinical research institutes and pharmaceutical firms to manage a growing body of medical images.  The vision is that these organizations could use the Watson Health Cloud to surface new insights from a consolidated, patient-centric view of current and historical images, electronic health records, data from wearable devices and other related medical data, in a HIPAA-enabled environment"
