6xW submitted “a Proof-Of-Concept (POC) study” and built a 'Demonstrator' for the BCUHB SBRI Challenge 'Patient Data Revolution'. This provided information, evaluation, implementation guide and roll-out of our proposed Data Capture Gateway.
Productivity through a ‘digital workflow’ was the objective, designed to use off-the-shelf OCR and our bespoke CHR (Cursive Handwriting Recognition) to convert 'off-line' text and 'cursive' hand-writing. Then relevant ICD-10, OPCS-4.7 and SNOMED coding data was extracted automatically. Subsequently, automated classification of Episodes was enabled using Machine Learning, Neural Network algorithms, ‘statistical’ and ‘deep learning techniques. Thereby, eradicating the reliance on handwritten documents through ‘digitisation’.
