Let’s get personalized – how IQVIA NLP drives precision medicine in Healthcare - Calum Yacoubian (IQVIA)

For true precision medicine, the importance of deep phenotyping is absolute. With increasing volumes of unstructured data vitally important to understand both the genetic basis of disease, but also the severity and progression of disease, repeatable means to create highly accurate curated features from these unstructured data is essential. In this session we will talk about how IQVIA NLP provides a repeatable and transparent means of accurate computational phenotyping that drives precision medicine. 

Spanning the gap: connecting data scientists to unstructured information - Ousman Mahmud (IQVIA)

Around 80% of a data scientists time is spent cleaning and preparing their data before it is ready to be processed. For unstructured information, this figure could be even higher when you factor in the lack of schemas, term ambiguity, inconsistent formatting and terminologies, etc. In the session, we will show how IQVIA NLP products can be used to obtain data from free text that has been cleaned, structured and normalized, allow users to spend their time on what matters: solving high-value business problems using the available tools and data. 

Improving risk adjustment and predictive analytics with AI augmented chart review - Calum Yacoubian (IQVIA)

Natural Language Processing is NLP is a key component of augmented intelligence in medical chart review, driving predictive analytics and risk stratification in healthcare. From government programs – such as Medicare Advantage Risk Adjustment – where chart review is necessary to ensure accurate capture and reporting of comorbid conditions, to predicting disease progression, there are many applications that are benefitted by bootstrapping chart review with AI. In this session – we will discuss how updates to the IQVIA NLP portfolio are helping healthcare organizations drive efficiencies in these areas.

Empower pharma decision-making with NLP from molecule to market - Hywel Evans (IQVIA)

From bench to bedside, researchers and clinicians need to base decisions on the best possible view of data. As 80% of data resides in unstructured sources, rapid effective access to the knowledge buried in text documents is essential.  Natural Language processing (NLP) allows organizations to transform unstructured text into actionable structured data that can be rapidly visualized and analyzed, for decision support. We will present how NLP provides a powerful solution to these challenges, with customer use cases ranging from disease understanding to medical affairs.
