Analyzing Text in Medical Records: A Collective Approach Using Visualization

With the rising costs of medicine and the advent of an aging population, there has never been a better time for accurate and thorough medical research.
For years doctors and hospitals have treated patients and kept records as to the treatment, examinations, and outcomes of the care given.

The world of medicine is full of text. To be meaningful, the text needs to be gathered and integrated.

Once our product collects the integrated medical text and analyzes it, all sorts of analytical possibilities arise.
