Amazon Comprehend Medical is a natural language processing service that makes it easy to use machine learning to extract relevant medical information from unstructured text. Using Amazon Comprehend Medical, you can quickly and accurately gather medical information, such as medical condition, medication, dosage, strength, and frequency from a variety of sources, like doctors’ notes, clinical trial reports, and patient health records. Additionally, the service identifies the relationship among the extracted medication and test, treatment and procedure information. For example, the service identifies a particular dosage, strength, or frequency related to a specific medication from unstructured clinical notes.

Developers can now use the extracted medical information and their relationships to build applications for use cases like clinical decision support, revenue cycle management (medical coding), and clinical trial management.

You can access Amazon Comprehend Medical through a simple API call, no machine learning expertise is required.
