Amazon’s new Al service extracts data
from medical records
Amazon on Tuesday introduced an artificial
intelligence-based cloud service called Amazon
Comprehend Medical that extracts key data
from medical records.
It uses machine learning and text analysis to read prescriptions, audio
interviews and test reports. It then organizes
data about diagnosis, treatments, medical
dosage and symptoms in a report for use by
healthcare professionals and patients.
Amazon will not use patient data for training
All extracted data will be encrypted
