The Challenges

Gaining clinical insights from unstructured text is challenging

NLP solutions must be trained in the complexity of clinical language to efficiently and effectively realize value from unstructured healthcare data. They need to be able to evaluate countless acronyms, abbreviations, and misspellings common in clinical parlance; understand the use of negation, specialty-dependent language, and time-based relationships; and identify relationships between words and phrases within a larger block of information.

Patient data
can be highly variable and inconsistent

Clinical patient data is a powerful resource in healthcare. But, as the healthcare IT ecosystem grows in complexity, data is more plentiful and problematic.

As patient data moves across various health information systems, it can become highly variable and lose key components. This leads to a drain on IT, analytics, and clinical resources, as staff must spend more time manually filling in the gaps.

How we help
IMO Precision Normalize is built on award-winning NLP to efficiently extract clinical concepts from free text data, seamlessly mapping clinical entities and structured data to standard codes for more accurate, complete, and usable data.
