Clearsense, with its platform applications focused on helping healthcare customers administer and analyze data, this week announced a licensing and partnership partnership with UPMC Enterprises.
WHY IT IMPORTANT
Working with the venture capital and innovation arm of the Pittsburgh health system, Clearsense will integrate Alexandria Charts, UPMC Enterprises’ unstructured data platform, into its own end-to-end platform, which is being built deployed in more than 400 hospitals nationwide.
Alexandria Charts provides tools designed to help simplify access to patient data recorded in unstructured clinical notes and to help providers use that data for Analytical modeling and machine learning.
The platform supports plug-and-play natural language processing and allows customers to easily aggregate, normalize, and transform unstructured data.
By partnering with UPMC Enterprises, Clearsense will work with its engineers and physicians to integrate Graph Alexandria with Clearsense’s next-generation Data Management and Delivery Platform.
According to Clearsense, this technology will help hospitals and their healthcare system customers increase and expand their use of patient data to improve quality and save costs.
TREND TO BIGGER WOMAN
The company notes that 50% to 80% of patient data exists as unstructured clinical notes.
Artificial intelligence applications can help providers make better use of this data to get actionable clinical and operational insights.
We’ve shown previously how health systems like St. Joseph Health worked with Clearsense for real-time analytics.
Among UMPC Enterprises’ other commercial ventures is Astrata, launching in 2021, which uses advanced analytics and natural language processing to help health insurers more efficiently analyze notes clinically unstructured.
“Understanding unstructured data is an essential part of interpreting and analyzing patient information,” Clearsense CEO Gene Scheurer said in a statement. “The platform created by UPMC seamlessly integrates with the Clearsense platform and collection tools, allowing healthcare partners to dig deeper into the data they need to make clinical, operational decisions move and finance smarter.”
“Based on years of development by our highly skilled team – and created to meet the needs of our healthcare system and portfolio companies – Alexandria Charts is part of critical to our vision to deliver high-quality data to healthcare organizations,” added Brenton Burns, executive vice president of UPMC Enterprises.
“By partnering with Clearsense, we can now continue to bring this innovative technology to more companies and health systems to make the best decisions for the patients they serve.”
