Atrius Health taps Linguamatics Health to process unstructured patient data

Boston-based Atrius Health implemented a natural language processing platform from Linguamatics Health to extract clinical information from unstructured patient data, the text analytics company announced Feb. 1.

Atrius Health, an ACO for Medicare, commercial and Medicaid patients, uses clinical notes to fulfill reporting requirements and quality initiatives. With the natural language processing platform, Atrius Health officials will be able to complete tasks, such as extracting codes for Medicare Advantage reimbursement or identifying social determinants of health to extend preventive care interventions, without preparing data in advance.

"A vast amount of critical clinical data exists as unstructured text which is difficult to access and analyze," said Joe Kimura, MD, CMO of Atrius Health. "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."
