Innovaccer’s Partnership With SyTrue Accelerates the Effort to Drive Healthcare’s Digital Transformation

The partnership will enable Innovaccer to identify valuable insights about patients that remain hidden in unstructured data sources across the network

Published on December 15, 2020

Innovaccer, Inc., a leading healthcare technology company, announces its partnership with SyTrue, a leading clinical data extraction provider, to generate robust, actionable insights from healthcare data.

The partnership allows Innovaccer to leverage healthcare’s most-advanced Natural Language Processing Operating System, NLP OSTM, and dive deep into clinical data, extracting valuable details about patient health journeys.

The integration of SyTrue’s proprietary NLP OS with Innovaccer’s FHIR-enabled Data Activation Platform will empower healthcare organizations to identify diagnosis codes and Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCC) from patient care progress notes and other unstructured texts. With the ability to gain insights from the unstructured datasets, providers can improve patient risk scores’ accuracy.

“Creating a longitudinal record is paramount to enabling an intelligent journey throughout our complex healthcare system. Crucial patient data is often not included as part of the complete medical record because it is locked in faxes, portable document formats (PDFs), and other unstructured documentation. To unlock the insights contained within these files is expensive and time-consuming,” says Kyle Silvestro, CEO at SyTrue. “Our partnership with Innovaccer will reduce the time and cost to create intelligent and comprehensive insights which will significantly enhance the patient journey.”

SyTrue’s NLP OS will empower Innovaccer’s data platform to semantically search, identify, and discover key elements from medical records across the organization, delivering relevant, actionable insights at the moment of care. NLP OS will allow Innovaccer to help its clients extract details about lab records, medications, vital signs, diagnoses, and other elements from structured and unstructured sources to meet quality requirements successfully.

The partnership will allow Innovaccer’s customer provider organizations to understand their patients’ medical records in a more comprehensive manner and optimize reimbursement through advanced coding, smart cohort identification, and unstructured data normalization.

“Generating insights from valuable data that remains hidden in unstructured data has always been a challenging task. These details provide great insights into the patient’s care journey, but most of the time, they go unnoticed,” says Abhinav Shashank, CEO at Innovaccer. “With our partnership with SyTrue, we are expanding our capability to make the best use of this crucial data and help healthcare organizations to care as one.”
