All kinds of information system are implemented under the development of hospital information management, from traditional HIS, LIS, PACS to EMR. These systems assist hospitals in their daily practices and generate large volume of valuable data which can be used in operational analysis, scientific research and education and decision-making support. However the fact is that there are large amount of unstructured data in the early development of these systems in order to comply with clinical habitual thinking and traditional requirements on medical record contents and styles. These unstructured data includes patient’s clinical information, so they are the very important data sources in clinical education and scientific research. We are supposed to extract these essential information from these unstructured data and put them into good use.
We need a professional conversion tool to turn these unstructured data into structured data which can be applied in data analysis for scientific research, education and hospital management.
Features and Functions
This tool supports customizable data extraction rules through the maintenance of rules beforehand and setting key words. We should extract and process the text data first, then constantly perfect and add extraction rules to make sure the availability and precision of data extraction.
Our tool supports data export and converts the results into EXCEL or other forms for user’s statistical analysis. It can also have automatic association with SPSS and send required data set to SPSS, then capture the statistical result from SPSS and display in front of the user.
The data extracted from our tool need to be reprocessed, spilt and selected, so that the final result could meet the requirements of clinical scientific research.
Multiple Data Sources
