Former Philips Healthcare CEO Deborah DiSanzo is the new General Manager of IBM's Watson Health unit, which aims to provide the company's cognitive computer system to health care professionals and patients. At IBM, DiSanzo leads more than 2,000 employees and is charged with scaling Watson Health globally and expanding IBM's Watson Health Cloud initiative. The Watson Health Cloud attempts to collect large amounts of patient data and make it easier for doctors and companies to make health decisions. IBM has teamed up with Apple (specifically, ResearchKit and HealthKit), Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic and other companies for the Cloud initiative.

Additionally, IBM announced new partnerships in its Watson Health business, including Boston Children's Hospital, Columbia University and Teva Pharmaceuticals. Plus, the company laid out two new endeavors: the IBM Watson Health Cloud for Life Sciences Compliance, which helps biomedical companies send products and innovations into the marketplace, and IBM Watson Care Manager, which "allows medical professionals to factor a broad range of determinants into a personalized patient engagement program, with the intent to vastly improve individual health outcomes," IBM says.
