At Highlands Oncology Group, IBM Watson is used for clinical trial matching. In the past, matching patients to clinical trials was a manual screening process, which left room for greater error margins. IBM Watson has made helping our patients find potentially beneficial clinical trials that could improve the prognosis of their diagnosis a much simpler process.
Not only does it provide Highlands patients with trial opportunities available at locally, it also allows our research staff to match patients with clinical trials across the United States. This ensures our patients receive the absolute best care available.
