Natural Language Processing (NLP): Unlocking the Potential of a Digital Healthcare Era - 2018 Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 14, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 14, 2018--The “Natural Language Processing: Unlocking the Potential of a Digital Healthcare Era” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report describes a dozen significant NLP healthcare use cases, including computer-assisted coding, speech recognition, and data mining.

Five of these solutions have proven ROI and are commercially available from numerous well-established vendors. Another four are going through the initial phase of the adoption cycle and are primed to have an immediate impact under the new value-based care paradigm.

These solutions focus on identifying the highest-cost patients earlier, tracking basic quality metrics related to annual follow-up, and reducing readmissions.

The last group of solutions will mature over the next three-plus years and includes computational Phenotyping for precision medicine, ambient virtual scribes to improve the electronic health record (EHR) user experience, and digital biomarker discovery using advanced voice-based diagnostic techniques.

There are many challenges to developing sophisticated NLP applications; these include the complexity of natural language, multiple technology approaches, and choice of metrics to measure success.

Implementing NLP brings yet more challenges, including hiring people with specialized skills and achieving data liquidity. While these challenges are not insurmountable, they require a full appreciation of what it will take to succeed.

This report provides insights and advice for HCOs that are considering, implementing, and deploying NLP technologies.
