IBM, Armonk, N.Y., and Boston Children's Hospital announced what they call the world’s first global education technology platform to transform how pediatric medicine is taught and practiced around the world. The technology aims to improve the exchange of medical knowledge on the care of critically ill children across all resource environments.

"Every year, nearly 7 million children under age 5 die from illnesses like pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria despite the availability of life-saving medical solutions," the organizations said in a prepared statement announcing the platform's launch. "The new technology platform, called OPENPediatrics, equips doctors and nurses with the knowledge and skills they need to save children’s lives during intensive care situations and will extend beyond critical care as adoption of the platform grows."
