Penn Medicine signs vendor for natural language processing

Philadelphia-based Penn Medicine will implement an enterprise natural language processing platform from Linguamatics Health, a text analytics provider.

The Linguamatics Health platform, powered by I2E, aims to help health systems mine and extract unstructured clinical data from patient records, specialist reports and EHR notes to inform medical research and healthcare delivery.

As an initial project, Penn Medicine will use the platform to identify cohorts of patients with certain medical conditions.

"We look forward to exploring different opportunities to use Linguamatics I2E's NLP capabilities to gain additional insights from our unstructured patient data," said Jason Moore, director of the Penn Institute for Biomedical Informatics.
