“Text documents have historically been black boxes to researchers and quality experts, because they had to be laboriously evaluated by hand, one at a time. With natural language processing we can utilize mountains of data we already have to improve care and, as appropriate, provide information to those who need it, including physicians, payers, and accountable care organizations.”
