Daedalus Presents Semantic Tools Able to Understand the Language of Healthcare

Madrid, Spain

28 OCTOBER 2014
Semantic tools applied to the Healthcare industry enable to better understand the "Voice of the Patient" and manage medical documentation more efficiently . Daedalus, a leading provider of semantic technologies and language processing, presents in a webinar (in Spanish) its tools able to understand the language of Healthcare.

Semantic technologies, which allow to understand and extract information from unstructured content (files, social commens) offer a great potential to the Healthcare industry. The possibility to better understand patients or to efficiently analyze and exploit medical documentation results immediately in quality improvements and cost reductions.

However, these technologies have limitations in understanding the specific language of the Healthcare sector: diseases, symptoms, treatments, active ingredients, drugs...

The Spanish company Daedalus, leader in language processing and semantic technologies, has developed tools that incorporate specific terminology based on standard ontologies, such as SNOMED, MedDRA and encodings like ICD-9/ICD-10. These tools enable the processing of medical unstructured information with a high precision, in large volumes, at low costs and high speed.

Daedalus' solutions for the Healthcare sector allow to:

  • Understand the conversation in social media (forums, blogs, networks) to analyze the reputation of a hospital / pharmaceutical company and its brands, discover trends and adverse effects, detect emerging crises... and in general to listen to the Voice of the Patient.
  • Structure, code, and automatically tag medical records and other clinical documents for drawing up statistics, make segmentations, detect trends and optimize health management.

Daedalus will present its solutions for the Healthcare industry in a webinar that will take place on Tuesday, 4 November at 4:00 p.m. CET time (Madrid), which will show how semantic technologies can understand the language of Healthcare, helping to better understand patients and manage more efficiently the medical information. The webinar will be held in Spanish.
