Tuberculosis (TB) Clinic Database
St. Michael’s Hospital hosts the busiest Tuberculosis (TB) clinic in Toronto. LKS-CHART is working with the TB clinic on developing a tool for analyzing TB clinic patient data with just a few mouse clicks.
TB clinic leadership, as well as clinical researchers, will be able to view and analyze patient data in a quick and flexible way. They might answer questions such as “How many Active TB patients were treated in the past year? How many of those patients belonged to marginalized communities?”
Most TB clinic patient data is stored in the form of dictated notes. LKS-CHART is using Natural Language Processing to extract patient information from the notes to make it readily available for analysis.
