Computer chip giant Intel has created a new business unit focused on digital health as part of a company reorganisation. The division, to be led by Louis Burns, "will develop products and explore business opportunities for Intel architecture products in healthcare research, diagnostics and productivity, as well as personal healthcare", said Intel. The Santa Clara, California-based group wants to emphasise its capabilities in "platforms" containing "full sets of technology ingredients", thus moving away from its traditional reliance on marketing components individually.
