Clinical Document Abstraction
Streamline free-text document abstraction with LabKey Server. LabKey Server provides a document processing pipeline, with optional natural language processing (NLP) engine integration, coupled with task assignment workflows and an intuitive curation and review user interface to help accelerate the process for annotating unstructured text documents from end-to-end.
Streamline End-to-End Processes
Standardize workflows and automate task assignments for more efficient document processing.
Provide Process Visibility
Provide visibility into your abstraction pipeline, informing process refinement.
Increase Reliability of Annotated Data
Minimize annotation errors with an easy to use annotation interface and standardize reviews.
Document Processing Pipeline
Pull unstructured, clinical documents into LabKey Server and prepare them for abstraction and review via the LabKey document processing pipeline. Incorporate document processing using an integrated NLP engine like Linguamatics I2E or custom-developed algorithms.
Workflow Management Engine
Efficiently manage the assignment of abstraction and review tasks in LabKey Server using configurable auto-assignment rules or a simple manual assignment workflow. Provide team members with a dynamic work list of assigned tasks and provide leadership with a birds eye view of the abstraction workflow.
Annotation and Curation UI
Simplify the annotation and review of free-text documents using the LabKey Server document curation UI. Original documents are presented side-by-side with the data entry interface and in-page navigation allows abstractors to move efficiently to the next document in their worklist upon completion of each task.
Conduct downstream analysis of curated data using LabKey Server’s built-in visualization and reporting tools, or easily export data for external analysis. Integrate data with related clinical, demographic, specimen or experiment data as part of a LabKey Study.
NCI SEER: Automating the Annotation and Review of Free-Text Pathology Reports
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) SEER Program works to provide information on cancer statistics in an effort to reduce the burden of cancer among the U.S. population. NCI SEER is utilizing LabKey Server to automate the annotation and review of the more than 450,000 unstructured pathology reports they receive each year.
