Integrated care is a concept bringing together inputs, delivery, management, and organization of services related to diagnosis, treatment, care, rehabilitation, and health promotion.  Increasingly, technology – and in particular cognitive computing – plays a central role in making sense of the myriad, often conflicting, always overwhelming data.  In this presentation, the perspective of integrated care within a global healthcare company will be presented along with the challenge of incorporating data of interest into its decision-making.  In particular, the challenge of discovery will be called out.  One technology innovator, with examples from industry, will describe how cognitive computing has been applied successfully to similar problems, and where wearable device data could provide still more insight.
