Auto-Ingestion - making sense of Clinical Notes with AI

A vast amount of valuable information in the health records of Scotland's nearly 6 million living patients registered with a GP is locked up in unstructured clinical notes, making it very time-consuming, error-prone and expensive to extract.  Studies based on these data are therefore mostly confined to the structure part of the record, leaving a potential treasure trove of clinical insights untapped.  In this talk, Angus will describe how the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria collaboration used Amazon's AI services to ingest and analyse the data contained in the unstructured clinical notes in the records of patients in that part of the UK, in their ongoing quest to improve patient outcomes.
