11 December 2013, Bridgend, UK – Clinithink, a world-leader in clinical natural language processing (CNLP) technology, today announced that it received the 2013 MediWales Innovation Judges’ Award.
The Judges’ Award recognizes the development of innovative technology and outstanding contribution to the Life Science Sector. Clinithink received this award for the significant success they have achieved in the US healthcare marketplace with their innovative CLiX technology.
“We are honoured to be recognized by MediWales with the 2013 Innovation Judges’ Award,” stated Clinithink CEO, Dr. Chris Tackaberry. “At Clinithink we will continue to develop innovative technology to deliver true understanding of clinical language. By unlocking unstructured healthcare data and making it actionable we enable our partners and their customers to drive improvements in performance, patient outcomes and enhance workflows.”
Clinithink’s CLiX Online technology is the first of its kind to be made available to the healthcare industry as an interactive service to structure and encode unstructured clinical narrative. By utilizing the CLiX solution, healthcare IT vendors and healthcare providers can maximize the value of the data they already produce to increase the accuracy of analytics solutions, improve care coordination and gain deeper insight for clinical decision support at the point of care.
