About Comprehend Medical -

Amazon Comprehend Medical enables our healthcare customers to easily extract value out of unstructured medical text, such as doctor's notes or patient test results. We use machine learning to process this text and detect relevant entities and relationships between them, such as medications or medical conditions. Amazon Comprehend Medical can dramatically reduce cost and time spent for use cases such as clinical trial recruitment or building clinical decision support and population health platforms. If you have experience and are interested in healthcare or machine learning, come and talk to us! We are just getting started.
