Getting More out of Analytics with NLP
February 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Rebecca Jacobson MD, MS, FACMI, VP Analytics, UPMC Enterprises. Measuring healthcare quality is foundational to improving it. However, measuring quality is difficult and expensive, with some of the most important data buried in free text fields and clinical notes. This session focuses on the use of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to more efficiently measure healthcare quality and drive quality improvements in MIPS and HEDIS measures. Dr. Jacobson discusses the application of NLP to quality measurement, and will describe early results from deployments at UPMC Health System and UPMC Health Plan.
