AWS Launches Machine Learning Service to Mine Patient Data
November 28, 2018 / Fred Donovan
Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched this week its Amazon Comprehend Medical machine learning service that enables healthcare professionals and developers to mine unstructured medical text and patient data, such as diagnosis, treatments, dosages, symptoms, and other signs of disease. The new service helps healthcare professionals improve clinical decision support, streamline revenue cycle and clinical trials management, and better meet data privacy and HIPAA requirements. Amazon Comprehend Medical uses natural language processing to simplify the process of using machine learning to extract pertinent information from unstructured medical text, such as medical notes, prescriptions, interview transcripts, and pathology and radiology reports. It then determines the relationship among the data analyzed.
