Huntsman Cancer Institute Taps Linguamatics Software to Mine EMRs


Linguamatics said this week that researchers at the University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute are using Linguamatics I2E, the company's text mining software solution, to extract information from electronic health records that could help them better understand cancer and improve treatments.

According to the company, HCI is using I2E to "extract discrete data from the unstructured text contained in surgical, pathology, radiology, and clinical notes related to hematology oncology disease areas such as leukemia and lymphoma." By combining this data with other sources of information including genomic data, HCI's scientists are able to investigate patient outcomes and genetic drivers of disease as well as conduct comparative effectiveness studies, the company said.

The financial details of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.
