Developing solutions to deliver actionable insights from unstructured clinical text

WASHINGTON and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Medicomp Systems, the leading provider of clinician-driven, point-of-care solutions that fix electronic health records (EHRs), and emtelligent, a leader in structuring clinical text, announced today a strategic partnership to co-develop new solutions that will support efficient clinical workflows and improve usability.

Both companies are at the forefront of using artificial intelligence (AI) to identify and deliver relevant information to physicians at the point of care. Their solutions help care providers focus on their patients and improve productivity by easing the burdens of documentation and providing better access to actionable information in the EHR.

Medicomp and emtelligent are developing new solutions to leverage their experience and innovative technologies. Medicomp’s Quippe Clinical Data Engine will work with emtelligent’s emtelliPro™ medical natural language processing engine (NLP) to support care providers in accessing the important information embedded within the free text that makes up much of clinical documentation and diagnostic reports.

emtelliPro’s development has been led by Tim O’Connell, M.D., a practicing radiologist and an expert in medical informatics, and Anoop Sarkar, Ph.D., a professor of computer science and researcher in natural language processing. emtelliPro is a deep learning-based, high-throughput medical NLP engine that has state-of-the-art accuracy and has been designed from the ground up for clinical relevance.

MEDCIN®, a core component of Medicomp’s Quippe Clinical Data Engine is based on more than 40 years of collaboration between clinicians and computer scientists to improve the delivery of high-quality, clinically relevant data at the point of care. Peter Goltra, the founder of Medicomp says, “With emtelligent, after 42 years, we have found a solution that allows us to leverage our clinical relevancy data engine to understand clinical text and improve patient care and the provider experience.”

The first co-developed solution from Medicomp and emtelligent is currently in beta-testing and will be generally available in the first quarter of 2020.

“When coupled with emtelliPro, MEDCIN and Medicomp’s Quippe Clinical Data Engine truly have the power to understand clinical text, which has huge potential to improve patient care and lessen the burdens of EHR systems on care providers,” emtelligent’s CEO, O’Connell, says.
