Based in Honolulu, Kuakini Health System (Kuakini) holds an extensive collection of epidemiological and clinical data contributed voluntarily by the Japanese-American community in Hawaii, including questionnaires, blood and tissue specimens, and brain tissue from autopsies. For decades, this data has helped to conduct numerous studies on cancer, heart disease, dementia, longevity and more.
IBM has produced a case study detailing how Sirius and IBM have helped Kuakini transform their paper files into digital content and develop a data warehousing solution to enable more effective analysis. Now researchers can quickly and easily access the information they need and analyze it for new insights, potentially leading to new research and potential breakthroughs that will improve medical care and health outcomes.
