A new IBM business unit launched last week to help physicians, researchers, insurers and patients use big data, analytics and mobile technology to achieve better health outcomes is being described by the company’s chief executive officer as their “moonshot” in healthcare.
IBM has announced a new business unit called Watson Health that will offer cloud-based access to its Watson supercomputer for analyzing healthcare data. Big Blue has partnered with Apple, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic to make it easier for healthcare organizations to store and analyze patient data by leveraging Watson’s cognitive capabilities and creating “new health-based offerings that leverage information collected from personal health, medical and fitness devices” providing “better insights, real-time feedback and recommendations to improve everything from personal health and wellness to acute and chronic care.”
 With the first generation of computers they counted things. The second generation you have to program them. What Watson represent, we use the word cognitive, and this is a system that learns. 
Three technology trends are converging at once, big data, cloud, and mobility, making medical breakthroughs possible. These technologies already represent 27 percent of IBM’s business. 
IBM says each person generates one million gigabytes of health-related data across his or her lifetime, the equivalent of more than 300 million books.
In July 2014, IBM and Apple joined forces to bring Big Blue’s core competencies in big data and analytics to Apple’s iPhone and iPad in an exclusive agreement whose goal is to create a new class of more than 100 industry-specific enterprise solutions, including native apps developed from the ground up for healthcare.
