What You Should Know:
– SyTrue offers its free AI-based solutions free of charge to qualified global public health organizations to help researchers and governments battling the COVID-19 pandemic
– SyTrue has developed solutions that enable identification of disease trends, early detection, and interventions, safety-monitoring of medicinal therapies, COVID-19 knowledge extraction, and accelerated identification of patient cohorts.
The solution will support efforts to identify COVID-19 disease trends and can assist in the development of potential therapies. In an effort to help researchers and governments battling the COVID-19 pandemic make earlier detection and interventions possible, SyTrue, Inc., a provider of Natural Language Processing (NLP) solutions, today announced the Company will provide its SyHealthTM for Population Health solution free of charge to qualified global public health organizations.
As increasing numbers of patients are diagnosed with COVID-19, front-line physicians will need to quickly document their encounters, oftentimes using shorthand or other methods to capture important data. SyTrue’s solutions standardize that data, making it possible to track the progress of the disease and gather crucial information about patients, such as new symptoms, risk factors and comorbidities. SyTrue’s suite of solutions can also follow patients over time, creating longitudinal health records.
SyHealth for Population Health Features
In order to harness the data that threatens to overwhelm the system, SyTrue has developed solutions that enable:
Rapid Identification of Emerging Disease Trends – SyHealth for Population Health makes possible retrospective analysis of trends across data that are not discoverable using electronic medical records (EMRs). Globally, SyHealthTM can be used to normalize data across multiple languages to speed the digitization of health data and identify emerging disease patterns.
Safety-monitoring of medicinal therapies- SyWhat terminology server provides real-time adverse event reporting that is uniquely able to encode Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (medDRA) codes and provide information that will be crucial as potential therapies for COVID-19 enter development and are tested in humans. SyWhat is an advanced clinical entity normalization and mapping server which can convert both structured and free-text to standardized terminologies.
COVID-19 Knowledge Extraction – The extraction and normalization of data from CT scans to diagnose COVID-19 with radiology tool SyRadTM that is currently used by two of the leading radiology organizations in the U.S.
Accelerated Identification of Patient Cohorts – Using SySearch discovery tool, researchers can identify patient cohorts and pandemic trends more quickly.
Expedite the Claims-review Process – As COVID-19 cases surge in coming months, organizations will be able to process claims faster using with SyAuditTM, reducing costs and ensuring payment integrity.
“As the number of COVID-19 cases soars both in the U.S. and around the world, data will grow exponentially. Our current healthcare system is not equipped to review and analyze this crucial information fast enough to stay ahead of the evolving pandemic,” said Kyle Silvestro, CEO of SyTrue. “To assist those working tirelessly to battle this pandemic, our SyTrue NLP OSTM platform and solutions can help health systems, global and domestic public health organizations, health plans and researchers tap into this data and make it usable, shareable and actionable in real-time.”
