NLP for Healthcare Quality Reporting

Quality measures help quantify healthcare processes, outcomes, and organizational structure and systems. Melax Tech has developed NLP-based approaches for quality measurement reporting.

For example, we developed a system for extracting Venous thromboembolism (VTE) mentions from radiology reports and encoding them to SNOMED concepts for one of the meaningful use criteria and leveraging the award-winning algorithms implemented in CLAMP, an extremely high sensitivity of 0.98 and a reasonable PPV of 90% for the detection of VTE cases were achieved at a client site.
