Health Fidelity, provider of a breakthrough natural language processing (NLP) platform for healthcare, on February 20, 2012 announced the launch of its Solution Partner Program, designed to help qualified healthcare organizations automate, leverage, and extract the value of unstructured clinical data.
A wide array of HIT applications are fueled by clinical data, but are constrained by the limited codified content available. Unstructured clinical data is codified through Health Fidelity’s NLP platform, massively increasing usable data. Together, Health Fidelity and its Solution Partners can tap the hidden value of narrative content to leapfrog the current generation of HIT applications in ease of development and power to address current and future needs.
“Health organizations have vast amounts of unstructured data that are currently unusable. We are making it easier for HIT vendors to harness that information,” said Dan Riskin, M.D., CEO of Health Fidelity. “The majority of physicians’ narrative notes, nurses’ comments and other unstructured content has yet to be utilized for analytics, presenting an enormous opportunity to improve the efficiency and quality of our healthcare system.
By offering this Partner Program to the HIT community, we can accelerate the integration and measurable benefits of NLP across the full spectrum of solutions, applications and services.” As much as 80 percent of medical information stored by healthcare organizations is unstructured and therefore unusable for extraction, automation, and analytics.
Healthcare organizations seeking ways to comply with meaningful use, ICD-10 conversion and other quality improvement requirements can capitalize on the data they already have to perform more accurate analytics, driving their performance improvement and cost reduction initiatives. Health Fidelity provides organizations with a cloud-based platform that is adaptable and easy to integrate, facilitating the extraction and application of vast amounts of clinical information.
The Health Fidelity NLP platform incorporates MedLEE, the most accurate, reliable, and extensively validated clinical NLP engine. In January 2012, Health Fidelity announced an exclusive license in healthcare to commercialize Columbia University’s MedLEE technology, leaving the company poised to be a NLP market leader.
Health Fidelity’s Solution Partner Program has three levels of partnership:
Health Fidelity’s Partner Program delivers structure and resources that enable HIT solution providers to develop and deliver high performance customer solutions that leverage the value of unstructured clinical data.
