Text analytics in health and social care

The two-year project with OLM Systems aimed to develop digital tools which allow health and social care organisations to search and analyse the huge textual data contained within clinical records. It was built on the Nalytics search and discovery platform, supplied by OLM Systems’ sister company Nalanda Technology, with the Informatics Research Centre at Henley providing further capabilities. Text analytics, which analyses textual data to find hidden associations and patterns, has the potential to be applied in the health and social care sector and may also have wider applications in other areas which use large volumes of textual data such as the legal and education sectors.
