IBM's health-care reach is vast. At HIMSS alone this year, it closed its acquisition of Initiate Systems, and introduced Initiate Exchange, a SaaS platform through which physicians can quickly receive and deliver patient data, and the first IBM-branded product delivered with Initiate’s technology. Initiate Exchange relies on patient and provider matching logic— that is, the ability to track and match patient data to direct it to the right user, on demand. IBM plans to leverage more of Initiate’s portfolio.
