The second healthcare text analytics conference - HealTAC 2019 - will be taking place in Cardiff on 24th & 25th April 2019.
Healthcare narrative (such as clinical notes, discharge letters, nurse handover notes, imaging reports, patients posts on social media or feedback comments, etc.) has been used as a key communication stream that contains the majority of actionable and contextualised data, but which – despite being increasingly available in a digital form – is not routinely analysed, and is rarely integrated with other healthcare data on a large-scale.
HealTAC 2019 will bring the academic, clinical, industrial and patient communities together to discuss the current state of the art in processing healthcare free text and share experience, results and challenges. The programme will include keynote talks (Prof Hongfang Liu, Mayo Clinic and Prof Stephane Meystre, Medical University of South Carolina), research papers, discussion panels, an industry forum, software demos, a PhD forum and poster sessions.
