Today on TownHall, Reid Stephan, VP and CIO at St. Lukes speaks with Nirav Shah, MD, Medical Director of Quality Innovation and Clinical Practice Analytics at NorthShore University HealthSystem. Nirav takes us on a journey into the development of a specific healthcare solution powered by NLP that yields actionable data drawn from unstructured health records. The cost-effective tool leverages NLP to identify social determinants of health thus revolutionizing the work of social workers within the hospital setting. But what are the most significant challenges of implementing such technology? Furthermore, how was the tool received by the clinical staff and what impact has the system had on patient care outcomes?
