The provider of health services CVS Health is cooperating with IBM in order to use the cognitive computer Watson to offer preventive health services to customers with chronic diseases. Watson will make a major contribution to finding out if patients' state of health looks like deteriorating, based on the data made available to the CVS medical staff. The computer will be used for patients with diabetes or high blood pressure, for example. For this purpose, data from medical tests, fitness trackers and information about medicine intake and environmental influences will be incorporated.
