Cloudera, MetiStream partner to drive advances in genomic medicine

Cloudera and MetiStream joined forces to use analytics and machine learning to enhance precision medicine.

Per the partnership, MetiStream, a healthcare analytics provider, built an end-to-end interactive analytics platform on Cloudera's machine learning platform. MetiStream’s Ember product works with the Cloudera Shared Data Experience, a software framework powering Cloudera Enterprise, which allows healthcare providers to bring together data from different sources. The system can mine unstructured data for patient insights.

Being able to merge clinical datasets with genomics information as well as apply advanced analytics will enable clinicians to enhance genomics medicine.

"Today, healthcare organizations can do what was previously impossible. They can integrate complex data sets from EHR, genomics, and imaging with machine learning and analytics at massive scale for momentous transformations in patient care, engagement, and outcomes," said Mike Olson, founder and chief strategy officer at Cloudera.
