One cannot make effective decisions in healthcare based on presently available data, given the amount of time and effort required to read and reformat the same. Consequently, it is essential to empower this unstructured data to transform the entire healthcare model from fee-for-service healthcare model to value-based care.
Recently scientists have come up with the idea of Natural Language Processing (NLP) a subcategory of Artificial Intelligence, to empower and transform the healthcare sector.
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is endowed with the supernatural capabilities of a well and genuinely mimicking human behavior and executing the innumerable amount of activities. In the below mentioned section, we shall be discussing about six essential features of Natural Learning Process (NLP) and how they are going to impact the health care industry
Top 6 features of language processing in health care
Below mentioned are top 6 features which might prove to be the driving factors of language processing in health care:
- Handle the surge in Clinical Data:
Health organizations can now access and manage a wide range of pateint’s data with ease after the innovation of a unique NLP system. Now the doctors don’t have to maintain the separate documents and billing information. The Natural learning process has given a digital transformation to the medicines.
2. Provide a Value-Based Care and Population Health Management:
Since we all know that the traditional health information structures were mainly targeting on finding value by utilizing only 20 percent of healthcare data that comes in a structured format through clinical channels. In order to create an advanced patient health care record system it is very essential to use the unstructured information in an efficient manner. Natural language processing can help in resolving all these challenges by improving the documentation of all the clinical records, thereby increasing the efficiency of CLC.
3. Improve the interaction between the patient and the health care provider with EHR:
Patients now a days seek for an extended attention from their respective health care providers. Sometimes they do have to provide certain personalized services to the patients besides maintenance of all the bills and other documents related to the patient.
But all these burnouts can be overlooked by introducing Natural Language Processing with the electronic record systems. This will help in reducing the workload of the doctors. Some of the best examples of NLP are Siri, Alexa.
4.Provide health literacy sessions to the patients:
With the increased success and application of the conversational AI in the health care sector, the patients can now understand the symptoms of their disease and learn more about their present condition. They have now started becoming more cautious about their health, and can easily keep their health on track by constantly communicating with the intelligent Chat box powered by NLP.
5 .Meet the requirement for providing improved healthcare services:
According to research, the introduction of Artificial Intelligence in health care can help in simplifying the assessment process of the doctors. It can also automatize the diagnosis process of the patients thereby reducing the time and efforts of the doctors in carrying out the same task. The Natural Language Processing can also identify the errors in the health care delivery system and accordingly help in improving the same.
6. Scrutinize patients who need more care:
Different Natural Learning Processing (NLP) and Machine learning tools can also help in identifying those patients who are in critical condition and require intensive care.
Hence all in all, since the healthcare industry deals with both structured as well as unstructured data, therefore it is very essential for the health care units to enhance their potential in both these sectors before implementing the Natural learning processing (NLP) in their health care units. With the adoption of NLP in their health care units will help them increase the accuracy and completeness of EHRs by converting the free script to a well structured and a standardized data. IT would also simplify the documentation process.
