Clinical Notes Mining Service (CNMS)

Posted by on

Raw text in clinical notes originating from a physician or nurse is invaluable. A significant quantity of meaningful clinical content is buried in the free text.

Many healthcare organizations are struggling to make sense of unstructured clinical notes and are losing out on the full potential of newly adopted Electronic Medical Records (EMR). The clinical details from these text complements the structured details and needs to be harnessed for decision-support, patient care and qualitative analytics.

Deerwalk Patient Attribution Model

Posted by on

A major criticism of much of current US health care, and the Medicare FFS program in particular, is the lack of accountability for patients’ care (Hackbarth, 2009).
