re: How UPMC Plays To Win In Healthcare IT
Analytics is an up-and-coming area at UPMC. They're starting to look at genomics and electronic medical records, for instance, to ensure personalized care. This is huge in areas such as breast cancer, where some cancers respond to chemo and some don't depending on the genetic makeup of the cancer and the patient. You obviously don't want chemo treatments unless you know it's going to do you some good.
