The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) has partnered with SD Technology and Chickasaw Nation Industries for the new ‘Sherlock’ project, an effort to serve federal, state, and local governments as well as universities nationwide.
We wanted to find a way to more clearly communicate our capabilities to potential partners, because we realize that the data management, technology, and policy challenges, especially in the health sector, can be overwhelmingly complex and confusing,” Dallas Thornton, Sherlock’s Director and SDSC’s Division Director for Health IT, said during the 29th Annual Conference of the National Association for Medicaid Program Integrity (NAMPI), held this week in Baltimore, MD.
The Sherlock team’s portfolio of expertise spans many IT disciplines, including cloud computing, cyber security, data management and mining, application development, HPC, big data, and visualization. These experts have developed and deployed specific services designed to provide a solid and secure foundation for a wide range of initiatives, including how Sherlock is taking on healthcare fraud.
Sherlock Cloud systems interconnect with a 10Gb/s (gigabits per second) network fabric within the SDSC Data Center, and wide-area networking utilizes more than 100Gb/s of high-bandwidth connections to the Internet and research networks such as Internet2, National Lambda Rail (NLR), and the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).
