MedCenral Launches New Healthcare Data-Mining Solution from Siemens


June 18, 2009

Siemens knowledge-driven, healthcare data-mining tool, Soarian Quality Measures, is enabled by the REMIND (Reliable Extraction and Meaningful Inference from Non-structured Data) Platform.

Soarian Quality Measures replaces time-consuming manual chart reviews with highly accurate and automated chart abstraction of quality measures. It analyzes and draws conclusions from all available electronic patient data from both Siemens and non-Siemens Information Technology systems, including structured data, such as demographics and financial information, and unstructured free text found in clinical notes and transcribed reports. The results of the analysis are presented in a simple, intuitive interface, allowing the abstractor to quickly review, validate the results and initiate the submission process.

The product puts the focus on improving performance instead of gathering data. It automates the abstraction of critical patient data and enables teams to focus on providing quality care.
