  • Date 20 Feb 2017

Varian to leverage Linguamatics NLP text mining within the 360 Oncology care management platform

“We chose to work with Linguamatics because of their experience in mining oncology data to improve clinical reporting and patient outcomes,” said Rachan Rao, Director Software Support Services, Varian Medical Systems.  “The use of NLP to extract key clinical concepts from patient documentation such as pathology, radiology and progress notes, provides oncology specialists with a more comprehensive view of their patients’ conditions and facilitates the creation of care management plans that are more precisely tailored to each individual patient based on their health status.”

“Varian has a rich history of delivering innovative, state-of-the-art cancer-fighting solutions and is dedicated to its goal of realizing a world without the fear of cancer,” said Simon Beaulah, Senior Director of Healthcare, Linguamatics. “Like Varian, Linguamatics is committed to leveraging clinical information so that care is improved for every patient to achieve optimal outcomes. We look forward to working with Varian and further advancing the fight against cancer.”
