HORIZON – which directly competes with IBM’s Watson – is the advanced “dark text” mining platform being adopted by hospitals, cancer registries and health care companies to improve patient outcome and management.

HORIZON the machine-learning platform, deciphers the 80% of health “dark text” or unstructured text that existing big data analytics can’t read and analyse.

Headed by CEO Professor Jon Patrick HLA (Health Language Analytics) delivers advanced language processing for health texts including information extraction and text analytics

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.
