How Machine Learning, Simulated Data, AWS, and Virtusa Brought Innovation to Diabetes Research at the IBRI


A catalyst for innovation, a leading bioscience research institute based in the Midwest, the Indiana Bioscience Research Institute (IBRI), is working toward its mission of becoming the first industry-inspired institute in the development of solutions that improve the health of those suffering from diabetes, metabolic disease, and poor nutrition. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Virtusa were brought in to assist the IBRI and Fuse by Cardinal Health to provide the technical skills and infrastructure to assess and optimize a simulated electronic health records (EHRs) dataset from Fuse to match the characteristics of  IBRI’s type 2 diabetes (T2D)-related EHR datasets.
