IBM will lend the power of its supercomputer Watson computer to South Florida’s Modernizing Medicine’s physician visit application. The Boca Raton-based company provides electronic medical record systems for specific specialty practices.

Modernizing Medicine will use this technology to introduce an app called schEMA. The application will field questions from physicians about conditions and treatments and respond with information retrieved from published health care sources.

It was one of three companies selected last week by IBM to partner with its Watson computer program after thousands applied.

“The power of Watson is a game-changing proposition. Since we established a Watson developer ecosystem, we’ve seen the creativity flow from entrepreneurs around the world with business-changing ideas for the Watson technology,” said Michael Rhodin, senior vice president of IBM Watson Group in a recent interview with The Miami Herald.

Modernizing Medicine is considered one of South Florida’s success stories with about 180 employees and $17.5 million in yearly revenue.
