Tuesday, October 20th, 2015 - HLA

One of Australia’s foremost experts in health language analytics and Big Text mining Professor Jon Patrick will speak at the HISA Big data analytics: Leveraging capability in healthcare (Sydney, October 20-21, 2015) www.hisa.org.au/bigdata/.

Prof. Patrick is CEO of Health Language Analytics (HLA) which delivers advanced language processing for health texts including information extraction and text analytics, known as Big Text Analytics.

The HLA technology focuses on the 80% of “dark text” or unstructured text that existing big data analytics can’t read and analyse.

HLA delivers customised language processing services for some of Australia’s largest hospitals and cancer registries with 97% accuracy and at one-tenth the cost of existing methods.

HLA’s expertise includes:

  • Natural Language Processing (NLP) of clinical texts
  • Clinical Data Analytics
  • Language Engineering Infrastructure

The Big data analytics: Leveraging capability in healthcare conference introduces the emerging trend for personalised healthcare and the groundswell of consumer-collected health data flowing into the health system, offering both challenges and opportunities for improved – evidence based – patient care.

Speakers include Prof Isaac Kohane, Director Centre for Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School and Dr Zoran Bolevich, Acting Chief Executive, Chief Information Officer, eHealth NSW.

“The volume of content in the medical record is 80% text and so far no-one has been able to mine it for useful purposes.  Big Data has actually only focused on 20% of the medical record. Our work in Big Text will enable the effectiveness of Big Data to be effectively quadrupled overnight and enable a vastly greater range of research projects along with massively increased scale,” said Prof. Patrick.

The conference attracts leaders in healthcare including healthcare practitioners, information specialists in healthcare environments, university and research institute scientists who are working to harness the power of big data for patient outcomes and business.

Prof. Patrick will speak on “Patient analytics and clinical decision making”.
