Transforming Health Care Through Data

Lori Beer, the executive vice president of Enterprise Business Services at WellPoint, spoke about how data -- and analyzing that data with systems such as IBM's Watson -- is transforming health care.
"If you look at [the health care industry], it's not that there's a lack of data. But if you look across the silos of the industry, whether it's pharmaceuticals, or medical devices, or medical providers and patients, it's a bunch of independent pools of information. So how do we bring it together ... and determine what's relevant?

We believe that [IBM Watson] can help bring all involved into the conversation, and help WellPoint share the data."
