The healthcare industry is constantly looking for more technology solutions, especially in this post-COVID world. BetaKit brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Semantic Health Comes Out of Stealth to Help Hospitals Use Coded Data.”

Semantic Health, a new startup, might be one of the best things to come out of the pandemic. Founded in 2019 with the goal of helping hospitals improve their medical coding and auditing processes, they have now launched their medical data platform publicly.

Semantic Health uses machine learning to automatically analyze unstructured data on patients, extract insights from the data and make it easier for hospitals to use the information. Efficiently analyzing data was something hospitals need to do well if they want to treat patients properly, especially during a global health crisis. The company has spent the last year working with a small group of hospitals to test and validate the product remotely.
