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.
