  • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
  • Online

The digitization of health care has created an abundance of clinical data, and organizations are grappling with how best to leverage this influx of information. Typically, the analysis of unstructured clinical data is manual, resource-intensive, and error-prone. But as patient and data volumes grow, these traditional methods will no longer be viable.

Artificial intelligence has been a topic of interest for years. Advanced technologies such as natural language processing and machine learning have been proven to automate the analysis of clinical data in an accurate manner. Organizations that take advantage of these technologies are successfully managing the transition to value-based care and achieving superior clinical, financial, and operational outcomes.
Attendees will learn:

  • How natural language processing technology is used to extract valuable insights from unstructured clinical narratives
  • Key criteria for evaluating different natural language processing engines offered in the market
  • Common misconceptions about cognitive computing technologies
  • Examples of how health care organizations have taken advantage of natural language processing and machine learning technology to improve clinical, financial, and operational outcomes

Who should attend: Managers, Directors, and Executives at health insurance plans and provider organizations
