Georgia Tech to launch healthcare big data research lab

The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta is developing a virtual and physical laboratory for health IT. A recent $40,000 donation from national security solutions provider Leidos will help the university develop and launch the lab.

The Interoperability & Integration Innovation Lab is also in partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Health and the University of Georgia Public Health Department.

The I3L's efforts are largely focused on the triple aim of healthcare.

"This gift from Leidos will provide students with the time and resources they need to begin the build-out of a data analytics platform to transparently help self-insured employers optimize the value —– foremost patient health outcomes —– of the healthcare dollars they expend," said Myung Choi, technical manager of I3L, in a news release.
