IBM Health Corps and Duke Health
North Carolina ranks 36th for overall health nationally and 38th for premature death, and Durham fares worse than the state overall on a number of health indicators. IBM Health Corps will partner with Duke Health to develop a framework for a Population Health Improvement informatics platform that Durham stakeholders can use to collaborate and share information to improve health equity.
“Deepening our understanding of health disparities, and the factors that drive them, is a central objective of the Duke Center for Community and Population Health Improvement. We are eager to work with IBM’s Health Corps on this project. Mapping current population health interventions will ultimately allow us to identify gaps, realize efficiencies and better define measured steps relevant sectors and stakeholders can take to improve population health.”
