I2E Natural Language Processing improves Medicare Advantage reimbursement, streamlines ACO reporting and reduces care gaps
Boston, USA – February 1, 2018 – Natural Language Processing (NLP) text analytics provider Linguamatics today announced the implementation of the Linguamatics Health enterprise NLP platform, powered by I2E, at Atrius Health to identify and extract critical clinical information hidden within unstructured patient data.
Atrius Health is a non-profit healthcare leader providing primary care and specialty care to more than 740,000 adult and pediatric patients across eastern and central Massachusetts. As a long-term Accountable Care Organization (ACO) for Medicare, commercial, and Medicaid patients, Atrius Health requires ready access to clinical notes and data to address reporting requirements and advance quality care initiatives, including programs that require the proper identification of at-risk patients to minimize care gaps.
“A vast amount of critical clinical data exists as unstructured text which is difficult to access and analyze. We are leveraging the power of NLP to replace the manual, inefficient data extraction processes that many healthcare organizations struggle with, in order to advance our quality care initiatives more rapidly,” said Joe Kimura, MD, Atrius Health’s chief medical officer. “Linguamatics NLP allows us to close gaps in care, enhance clinical documentation for chronic disorders, reduce litigation risks, and streamline Medicare ACO quality reporting.”
