Wolters Kluwer's POC Advisor to integrate NLP solution from Hiteks Solutions for inclusion of structured and unstructured documentation
- 28 Jun 2017

Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that POC Advisor, its real-time clinical surveillance and analytics platform, will integrate the Natural Language Processing (NLP) solution from Hiteks Solutions, Inc. for inclusion of structured and unstructured documentation to make them immediately actionable. This enables real-time analysis of physician notes for infection sources, chronic comorbidities and other clues to the presence of sepsis. Doing so improves the efficacy of sepsis alerts and patient-specific treatment advice POC Advisor delivers to clinicians at the point of care.

POC Advisor aggregates, normalises and analyses patient data from disparate clinical systems to deliver timely and accurate sepsis alerts and advice. Hundreds of rules built into the platform account for possible comorbidities and medication abnormalities, and trigger alerts that have demonstrated unprecedented levels of sensitivity (95%) and specificity (82%) as published in a peer-reviewed study in the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA). That study also found that POC Advisor reduced sepsis mortality and sepsis-related 30-day readmissions by 53% and 30%, respectively.

The power of the combined platforms derives from Hiteks' quality and reimbursement-focused NLP, initially leveraged for sepsis, along with POC Advisor's highly accurate prescriptive analytics, to improve and accelerate diagnosis. Health systems and providers also benefit from strengthened clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and core measures abstracting functionality, which reduces the resources required to exceed the 75 percent core measures threshold and improves specificity of ICD-10 claims codes, optimising revenue cycle.

Elsevier launches PharmaPendium DMPK solution
- 20 Jun 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, has launched the PharmaPendium DMPK (Drug Metabolism-Pharmacokinetic) solution. The DMPK solution delivers searchable pharmacokinetic, metabolising enzymes and transporters data to provide a complete picture of potential drug-drug interactions (DDIs) and drug candidate risk assessment.

PharmaPendium DMPK informs preclinical and clinical risk/benefit analyses - enabling researchers to make quick evaluations of which drug candidates to progress. The DMPK solution also includes a drug-drug interaction risk calculator (DDIRC), which is compliant with 2012 FDA guidelines on Industry Drug Interaction Studies. Together, the solutions support informed and accelerated decision-making.

In drug discovery and development, early and ongoing assessment of DDIs is critical. Undetected DDIs can lead to severe side effects, resulting in the refusal of regulatory approval, severe prescribing restrictions or the withdrawal of drugs from the market. The FDA reports that between 1995 and 2010, the proportion of adults dispensed five or more drugs doubled to 20.8%; the proportion dispensed ten or more tripled to 5.8%. DDIs account for between 3-5% of all reported adverse drug events and, with an aging population and this increasing trend towards polypharmacy, are an urgent concern.

PharmaPendium's DMPK Solution provides a unique source of searchable pharmacokinetic, metabolizing enzyme and transporter data and, together with DDIRC, allows users to predict potential interactions between an investigational drug and multiple drugs simultaneously - providing a full risk profile against marketed drugs.

The DMPK solution contains over 2.2M pages of FDA approval documents, 680K pages of FDA Advisory Committee documents, and 200K pages of EMA approval documents. Over 4,400 drugs are indexed and fully searchable; with 1.6M extracted pharmacokinetic data lines and over 302K metabolizing enzyme and transporter lines. It delivers the information that scientists need to answer critical questions during drug development; including what other studies were conducted to assess DDI risks and what concerns regulatory agencies have previously expressed about potential DDIs.

The PharmaPendium DMPK Solution and DDIRC are available from June 19, 2017.

IOP Publishing launches Remarq pilot on several of its journals
- 02 Jun 2017

RedLink has announced a pilot of Remarq on several IOP Publishing journals, including the Journal of Optics, the New Journal of Physics, Nanotechnology, and Biofabrication. Remarq is a new tool for the publishing community offering annotation, commenting, article sharing, and collaboration, all on the publisher's site and utilising the version of record.

Remarq keeps researchers and readers on publisher-branded sites by providing a powerful and smoothly integrated set of tools that support authors, editors, and users. By supporting engagement on the version of record, Remarq offers the opportunity to leverage author updates, supplemental information or data, and additional assets related to the article, creating a rich environment for collaboration.

The IOP journals join additional journals from Canadian Science Publishing as early adopters of Remarq, which launched its first version in mid-May.
