Cloud Pak for Data

Healthcare Location Services Optimization 

14 days ago

How far will patients travel to access quality health care? Use the Healthcare Services Location Optimization accelerator to jump-start your analysis.

What's included?

  • A structured business glossary of more than 60 business terms.
  • Sample data science assets and dashboards.

How does it work?

The glossary provides the information architecture that you need to understand patient behavior. And your data scientists can use the sample notebooks, and dashboards to accelerate data preparation and data visualization.

When you import the accelerator:

  • The terms are added to your business glossary under the Healthcare Services Location Optimization category.
  • The data science assets are added to a new analytics project.
