Toronto, ON (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
ZyDoc, an Islandia, NY-based medical informatics company, has been selected to participate in the Retinal Innovation Forum at the 31st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) held August 24-28, 2013 in Toronto, Canada. ZyDoc Chairman James M. Maisel, M.D. will present “Dictation for EHR Data Capture and Analytics,” highlighting ZyDoc’s MediSapien™ Platform and associated innovations in health care data capturing, structuring, and mining technologies. Maisel, a retinal specialist, will also present his research on “Using Unstructured Data Sources for Analytics in a Retinal Practice,” as an educational poster at the ASRS conference.
MediSapien is an enterprise-class web-based platform from ZyDoc for conversion of unstructured text into fully coded structured data. MediSapien accepts dictation or text from transcription vendors, legacy data and EHRs. The fully coded structured output, including ICD-10, is optimized for insertion into EHRs and facilitates interoperability. MediSapien also performs computer-assisted coding (CAC) for revenue cycle management (RCM) companies and data mining optimized for health data analytics. The MediSapien platform supports independent application developers.
MediSapien empowers doctors to work efficiently dictating their encounters rather than performing tedious mouse and keyboard EHR data entry. The dictations are automatically speech-recognized to assist the typist in rapid generation of perfectly transcribed documents. Authors can approve the transcriptions that are automatically inserted into EHRs along with structured data and text. The text can be mined for analytic reporting, and the codes include ICD-10 for revenue cycle management. Legacy unstructured text or semi-structured EHR data can be converted to EHR structured data meeting Meaningful Use Stage II requirements.
According to Maisel, “MediSapien, a platform under development since 2010, incorporates innovative disruptive yet enabling natural language processing (NLP) and patent-pending health care informatics technologies to capture and unlock meaning from patient health data for health care providers. It is a powerful tool for use by practices, pharmaceutical companies, RCM vendors, researchers, and public agencies in analyzing de-identified data (analytics). MediSapien is an excellent tool for answering clinical questions with over 110,000 macular degeneration and 16,000 retinal vein occlusion encounters in the database.”
The 31st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) will be held August 24-28, 2013 in Toronto, Canada. The Retinal Innovation Forum, on Monday, August 26, will offer a glimpse into the future, as retina pharmaceutical and device manufacturers and private companies present their retinal innovations and pipeline products.
