A roadmap to unlocking digital insights from unstructured documents

Thursday, May 26th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Unstructured documents plague the healthcare industry, hindering automation and bogging down workflows.

More than 83 percent of healthcare organizations' data is embedded in unstructured documents like paper faxes and PDFs, according to the Consensus 2021 Industry Trends Survey on Healthcare. The resulting lack of interoperability poses many challenges for healthcare facilities' business processes.

In this session, experts will share how optical character recognition, natural language processing and artificial intelligence can close this digital divide.

Attendees will learn:
  • How faxes can contain useful information
  • Key lessons from the pandemic and how locked-down data became a roadblock for diagnosis and treatment
  • How moving from unstructured to structured documents can help speed patient treatment
  • How utilizing OCR, NLP and AI can help with the stress of workflow shortages
  • The challenges healthcare has faced in structuring and sharing its data
