Data from clinical warehouses or EMRs does not necessarily come in a single, readable format, and are often accompanied with headers and footers. Cleaning this data manually, which can also have duplications, is laborious and time consuming. “We provide an end-to-end solutions suite that not only collects the data, but processes and democratizes it. This gives physicians access to interoperable content, enabling them to create value and proactively catalyze change,” notes Silvestro. Also accounting for the variation in language, their solutions accurately identify and extract the pertinent information from over 600,000 physicians and more than 6000 hospitals across the U.S.
Built on a platform which is offered as a service to its clients, SyTrue’s Natural Language Processing (NLP) OS provides a foundational layer with the tools required to use it out of the box. Explaining the functionality of the OS, Silvestro says, “We have created an OS that our partners can use to interact with the technology and build applications on top of it, which can then be accessed by a mass audience with little to no special training.”
Being flexible and scalable, the platform is powered by an open API with modern standards that can process over a billion documents a day, in a timely and accurate manner, liberating content from a previously locked down environment.
The company’s aim to proactively impact the society by introducing disruptive ways of looking at healthcare is reflected in its work with Xerox. The corporate giant implemented SyTrue’s clinical NLP and Smart Data platform for advanced analytics capabilities. “Through our tools like AI and machine learning, Xerox is able to calculate real-time risks and expected patient care outcomes.” This enables them to direct care management decisions for individuals prior to discharge, improving healthcare in a way that positively impacts the society.
Smart Data virtually eliminates order entry, allowing physicians to concentrate more on their patients rather than the computer screens
With a focus toward improving healthcare and creating new standards through accurate and interoperable information, SyTrue works in tandem with startups and other organizations that have the same vision, to push the boundaries of innovation. “The level and speed of innovation happening at SyTrue has put us on track to provide the technology that can change healthcare for the better,” concludes Silvestro.
