How does NLP support precision medicine and improve patient clinical care?
Precision medicine focuses on disease treatment and prevention, taking into account the variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle between individual patients. In order to understand the best treatment pathway for a particular patient or group of patients, it is important to be able to access and analyze detailed information from the medical records of patients, and ideally broader aspects beyond their medical history.
