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. This service API is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region.

Using Amazon Comprehend Medical, you can quickly and accurately gather information such as medications and their dosage, strength, and frequency; medical conditions; and test results. Comprehend medical also extracts references to personal health information (PHI). This information can be extracted from a variety of sources, such as doctors’ notes, clinical trial reports, and patient health records. Comprehend medical offers both synchronous APIs to extract medical entities document-by-document, or batching APIs to extract medical entities from many sources at once. 

The service is fully managed and continuously trained by AWS. Amazon Comprehend Medical makes it easy to add medical text analytics to your applications by removing any skills or steps required to build and run NLP models. Get started with Amazon Comprehend Medical by using the console, or the API.
