Natural Language Processing Opportunities and Pitfalls Highlighted in New Issue Brief from Health Fidelity
Date:8/27/2013

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Fidelity, a healthcare big data company, has released a new issue brief addressing what Natural Language Processing (NLP) is, what it is often confused for, how it acts as an enabling platform, and how the technology can be leveraged today for revenue, efficiency and quality. The issue brief, titled "The What, When, Where and How of Natural Language Processing," explains that NLP is an enabling technology that allows computers to derive meaning from human, or natural language input. 

Enabling technologies to improve healthcare workflow are critically important as physicians find their time consumed with electronic data entry over patient care. NLP can support meaningful narrative descriptions with minimized repetitive manual data entry, automatically extracting critical and extensive information needed for clinical, financial and operational applications.

"Natural Language Processing is one of the most hyped technologies in healthcare, but also one of the least understood," said Dan Riskin, M.D., CEO and co-founder of Health Fidelity. "Healthcare organizations recognize that 80 percent of the valuable clinical information is locked in narrative text.  They are increasingly looking to extract value from that content to improve care and reduce costs." 

In addition to citing examples of the downstream applications that NLP technology is commonly used to empower, the issue brief covers areas such as:

  • How an NLP solution can be evaluated
  • Applications that can be enabled by NLP
  • Industry leaders in NLP

The issue brief concludes that coding for billing, coding for quality reporting, and coding for analytics will ultimately require a common infrastructure, which will include the use of full clinical data. Health systems are increasingly demanding inclusion of best of breed technologies and use of the full clinical record. Leveraging big data technologies can empower the healthcare industry to deliver higher quality care that is more personalized, more efficient and more cost effective.
