Inovalon and the University of Maryland Center for Health Information & Decision Systems Collaborate on Machine Learning and Neural Network Applications
Industry and Academic Leaders Focus on Deep Learning and Machine Learning Methodologies
BOWIE, Md. – November 20, 2017 – Inovalon (NASDAQ: INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based platforms empowering a data-driven transformation from volume-based to value-based models across the healthcare ecosystem, today announced a collaboration with the University of Maryland’s Center for Health Information and Decision Systems (CHIDS) as part of its expanding applications of machine learning and neural network solutions within the predictive analytic Components of the Inovalon ONE™ Platform.
Through this engagement, CHIDS will join Inovalon’s ongoing development initiative focused on Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) solutions utilized within the Inovalon ONE™ Platform. Leveraging these technologies, and the large-scale compute environments available within the Inovalon ONE™ Platform, Inovalon has been advancing its capability to perform ultra-high-speed analysis of unstructured data contained within raw clinical documentation such as that found within Electronic Health Record platforms. Integrating these capabilities with Inovalon’s national-scale EHR connectivity and MORE2 Registry® dataset (which contains data pertaining to 231 million patients and 34 billion medical events) empowers the real-time analysis of combined clinical data and claims-based data at ultra-high speeds. These capabilities enable dramatic improvements in scale, breadth and depth of analysis, speed to insight, and efficiency in processes where both clinicians and traditional analysts would otherwise be needed.
“We are at a tipping point for harnessing diverse data sources and utilizing advanced artificial intelligence capabilities to transform healthcare in ways we had not imagined in the past,” said Ritu Agarwal, participating researcher and the Robert H. Smith School’s senior associate dean for research. “The ability to collaborate with an industry leader such as Inovalon provides further validation of application and measurable impact of this initiative.”
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with UMD’s CHIDS, pioneers in the study of digitally enabled health system transformation and known for its thought leadership and research collaborations,” said Eric Sullivan, senior vice president, innovation and data strategies at Inovalon. “Leveraging insights from the collaboration with UMD, Inovalon will continue to deliver innovative industry-leading capabilities within the Inovalon ONE™ Platform as we focus on delivering highly differentiated capabilities to the healthcare marketplace.”
