Join our seminar in Rosemont: Connected Natural language processing

OIC Auditorium, 10275 West Higgins Road, Illinois, Rosemont, 60018, United States


Time: 7:30am PDT, 10:30am EDT, 3:30pm BST, 4:30pm CEST

Duration: 360 minutes

Natural language processing is a powerful technology that is being applied in new and innovative ways across healthcare. Join our in-person seminar series to hear about the advances in NLP and machine learning techniques being applied within healthcare, pharma and government organizations. Learn about new applications for leveraging NLP to unlock key insights from unstructured text to improve patient outcome, safety assessment, brand awareness, and more.

The seminar will be focusing on topics such as precision medicine, risk adjustment, population health as well as generating high-quality data and insights for drug discovery, safety, regulatory and medical affairs teams. 

The agenda will include presentations from client organizations using IQVIA NLP, as well as product updates and overview from IQVIA. There will also be opportunities for knowledge sharing, hands-on learning, and time to network with IQVIA NLP experts, customers and other seminar attendees.  

Agenda Main Topics:  

The final agenda will be available in the weeks ahead but use cases will cover: 

  • Providers & Health Systems, Payers & Insurance Companies 
  • Pharma discovery, safety, regulatory, and medical affairs 

Who should attend:  

  • Current customers – we would love to say hi in person and show you our latest solutions 
  • Researchers, scientists, product teams, clinicians, or anyone struggling to get the information you need from volumes of unstructured records and texts – we can provide solutions and innovation
  • If you’re a data scientist, technical architect, executive in innovation, analytics quality or have an enterprise data role working with lots of unstructured data or looking for NLP solutions - this is for you.

Implementing an AI NLP Tool to Address SDOH Needs - Danielle Jungst & Emily Kwan (NorthShore)

NorthShore, in partnership with Linguamatics, is developing a natural language processing (NLP) system to extract important insights hidden in our vast amounts of unstructured data.The initial use case is to identify and extract social determinants of health (SDOH) data. Currently we are in the nascent stages of screening for SDOH needs in a standardized format so our SDOH data is frequently buried in the clinical note text. This data collection format makes it challenging to bring the relevant information to the forefront for care teams to act on. By leveraging NLP to store SDOH data in a structured format, we can feed this information back into our EMR for care team member review and intervention. The pilot program will focus on providing our social workers a list of patients who are in the Emergency Department (ED) with an NLP-identified SDOH need. The social workers will verify the SDOH need with the patient and provide community resources or enroll the patient in care management where applicable. Where previously the social workers may not have interacted with the patient, they will now be able to intervene on any unmet social needs.

Let’s get personalized – how IQVIA NLP drives precision medicine in Healthcare - 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. 

Improving risk adjustment and predictive analytics with AI augmented chart review - 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.

Product showcase including live demonstration - James Butler & Lenon Mendes (IQVIA)

Our application scientific will be running some demonstration on the different IQVIA NLP products. 

Spanning the gap: connecting data scientists to unstructured information Paul Milligan - (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. 

Empower pharma decision-making with NLP from molecule to market - Jane Reed (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.

Lost in data: empowering life science users to find the right information - Jane Reed (IQVIA)

Powerful text-mining technologies can prove invaluable for everyone from data scientists and technology teams through to scientists and professionals across pharma functions. In this session we will take a closer look at three scalable ways we can put the power of NLP into the hands of these teams in safety, regulatory and medical affairs. The case studies and examples in this session bring to life how text mining scientific literature, drug labels & regulatory documents, social media and news sources can unlock new insights or help teams work more efficiently.  By empowering users to search, compare, extract and analyse relevant rich data that is otherwise buried within text and document sources, teams can focus on applying their expertise and less on sifting through vast data sources for the information they need to get started.
