SickKids improves scope of DI data with Bialogics
January 13, 2021
TORONTO – Bialogics Analytics has announced the go-live of its DxPro Clinical and Operational Analytics Solution for Medical Imaging at The Hospital for Sick Children. Using the new system, SickKids, an academic pediatric hospital in Toronto, turned 20 years of radiology reporting into a unified data repository containing 2.5 million diagnostic reports.
Bialogics technology has created a structured and searchable database used for research, clinical, and operational analytics that provides access to cohort identification and extraction and codification of discrete variables that can be used for research initiatives and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) development.
The Bialogics Analytics solution leverages the emtelliPro advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine with detailed search tools that intelligently identify synonyms, acronyms, relationships, and other correlations.
Clinicians and researchers can quickly identify clinical cohorts and analyze cross-functional, multi-disciplinary data across all corners of an enterprise while also reducing the time and cost of research initiatives.
Jeff Vachon (pictured), president of Bialogics, said: “Existing workflow and analytical tools offered as part of your RIS/PACS are useful for operational monitoring, but not informative enough for research or transforming patient care. The convergence of imaging metadata with knowledge extracted from diagnostic reports provides a new level of intelligence that has the potential to drive evidence-driven improvements in imaging workflow efficiency and care quality while supporting clinical research initiatives that will continue to advance disease tracking and management in the future.”
Bialogics Analytics provides fully interoperable and innovative data transformation solutions for Medical Imaging building the data foundations to support the emerging markets of AI, ML and Business Intelligence with its AI-Ready, Business Intelligence Platform. Bialogics is the first fully interoperable, truly vendor agnostic platform designed to be highly scalable, performant, and modular for medical imaging researchers, physicians, and administrators that integrates seamlessly into any medical imaging ecosystem to deliver complete and actionable insights in real-time.
