Medical Center improves access to unstructured information

The Unversity of Kansas Medical Center has chosen a software solution to more effectively manage unstructured information. The Medical Center has implemented Concept Searching’s Smart Content Framework to improve findability, records management and classification of its content.

The technology will perform metadata tagging, auto-classification and search across the Medical Center, as well as its component schools, which include undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the School for Allied Health Services, the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing.

The solution includes conceptSearch and conceptClassifier from Concept Searching. The company describes conceptSearch as a language-based technology that can deliver high precision and high recall. conceptClassifier is a rules-based categorization module that gives clients rules-based descriptors unique to their organization, according to Concept Searching.

“By weighting compound terms or multi-word phrases, instead of the typical single words or words in proximity, the retrieval experience for the University of Kansas Medical Center will be significantly more accurate and relevant than before,” says Martin Garland, president of Concept Searching.
