Clinithink to showcase CNLP solution at EHI Live 2014

Clinithink will be exhibiting at EHI Live 2014 on 4th and 5th November to discuss and demonstrate the clinical, efficiency and financial benefits of transforming clinical narrative into rich structured data.

Based on stand A36 in NEC Hall 1, Birmingham, the Clinithink team will be available to explain how their CLiX CNLP (clinical natural language processing) solutioncan support clinicians with difficult-to-access, valuable patient data from their unstructured narrative. By unlocking unstructured clinical data from reports, discharge summaries, letters and notes in EPRs, Clinithink can arm healthcare professionals with actionable, structured patient information for more effective, faster clinical decisions at the point of care.

Delegates from NHS providers, commissioning organisations and exhibitors can also find out about how Clinithink’s CLiX ENRICH solution is able to interrogate and analyse unstructured data to support better management of the very high-risk, high-cost and vulnerable patient population resulting in reduced acute readmissions. CLiX ENRICH also supports improvements in preventative care, and targeted intervention by clinicians.

Dr. Chris Tackaberry, Clinithink CEO said: “Data and technology are rightly seen to be key enablers in NHS transformation. EHI Live brings together those with an interest in developing and innovating technology for better outcomes and reducing costs across our health service. We would like to meet, discuss and debate with delegates how the NHS can benefit from using the vast amount of unstructured clinical narrative that is stored within healthcare IT systems such as EPRs. We’ll be available to offer our advice and expertise on how our solutions can help identify and reduce potential risk, manage population health more effectively and improve patient outcomes.”

Clinithink will also be running its ‘NHS Acronym Challenge’ across the exhibition’s two days. Delegates are invited to stand A36 to guess the full names of as many healthcare-related acronyms from a predetermined list within one minute. Those with top scores will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win an iPad mini or a bottle of wine.

EHI Live, now in its seventh year, is a conference and exhibition with keynote sessions across three main healthcare areas; Leadership, Best Practice and Innovation. It includes speakers such as Tim Kelsey, national director for patients and information NHS England, Andy Williams, chief executive of the Health and Social Care Information Centre, and Andrew Griffiths, chief information officer and director of NHS Wales Informatics Service.
