Agamon Health uses AI to turn radiology reports into actionable data. It ensures patients have a clear understanding of their health and that no treatment recommendations go missed.
A vast amount of information is gathered when healthcare practitioners assess and diagnose patients, but 80% of that data is unstructured. Therefore, it’s unusable in a variety of situations. This can, in part, lead to errors being made – 25% of radiologists in the US are involved in a lawsuit relating to a communication error. 30% of follow-up recommendations are missed due to a lack of clarity.
Agamon Health is solving that by using AI to turn radiology reports into useful, actionable data and information. Their algorithms scan the report looking for a variety of information. Rather than only look for specific keywords, artificial intelligence understands how to connect statements with medical terms. The company is planning to expand beyond radiology as their products develop.
The information can be used in a few different ways, depending on the needs of the organisation. Agamon Coordinate reduces communication errors by ensuring recommendations don’t go missed and are followed up. It can track patient adherence to the advice to ensure optimal outcomes and saves time on admin work for doctors.
Agamon Analyse uses data gained from the reports to generate usable insights for the practitioners and the organisation. It does this by taking previously unused data from clinical reports and uses machine learning to create new impactful insights.
Agamon Simplify is the patient-facing software solution to ensure communication about the patient’s treatment plan is fully understood. The average adult in the US cannot understand 96% of a radiology report. Giving patients clearly organised information on their health is empowering and can help them make informed decisions about their lifestyle. Such services will be increasingly important as we continue to see the adoption and development of patient-facing services, such as the NHS App and Patients Know Best.
