Understanding and managing population health and wellness is vital in a changing payer and health plan landscape. But with 80% of the data in unstructured Big Data, so much insight is trapped in text. How are payers to extract these member insights and apply them in statistical and machine learning models?

This webinar explores NLP techniques for data discovery and information extraction to enhance predictive risk models, improve population stratification and automate capture of HEDIS quality measures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how NLP can integrate into analytics, data warehouses and lakes.
  • See how risk factors, medications, disease lists and lab values can be extracted from clinical and member notes.
  • Gain insight into extraction of HEDIS metrics by using NLP techniques.
  • Understand the skills and requirements needed to support NLP.
