Wake Forest Baptist Health developing data integration tool to spur innovation

The Center for Healthcare Innovation at Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Health has formed a partnership with blockchain-secured data management startup Fluree to build a data integration and review tool, per a Feb. 25 news release.

With the new tool, the innovation center's team, housed within the health system's Wake Forest School of Medicine, will be better equipped to analyze data from multiple sources more quickly and efficiently.

The "clinically important" results identified in those analyses will then be translated into innovative new solutions to improve patient health across the country, Jeff Williamson, MD, director of the innovation center, said in the release.
