IBM Case study: Using IBM Watson to deliver fast, accurate results to patients undergoing genetic testing
Read the IBM Case study how Blueprint Genetics uses IBM Watson cognitive analytics to speed up the genetic data interpretation and to expand the product offering.
“By eliminating one of the biggest operational bottlenecks, we have been able to achieve our goal of transforming our business from a cardiovascular specialist to an all-encompassing genetic testing service that can test for a comprehensive range of inherited disorders,” says Samuel Myllykangas. “We can now provide the one-stop shop that our clients have been looking for—giving us a significant competitive advantage.
He concludes: “When we founded our business, it was common for genetic sequencing providers to take months or more to deliver results. As standard, we offer to deliver results within 21 days, and now that we have the IBM solution, we’re achieving average turnaround times of just 14 days.
“We see ourselves as raising the bar for the whole industry, and as we continue to build on the solution we’ve developed with IBM, Elinar and Enfo Rongo, we’re excited to see how much further we can raise standards in the future.”
