Unlocking Clinical Insights - Electronic Frailty Index

Together with Tampere University and University of Jyväskylä, Veracell took on the ambitious project of crafting an automated electronic frailty index (eFI) from patient journals. The challenge? Decrypting the invaluable insights buried within clinician's free-text notes.

  • Used FinBERT language model to convert rich narratives into structured data.

  • Transformed free-text into labeled sets for targeted model training.

  • Collaborated with HUS Acamedic for its seamless Azure ML integration.

Unlocking insights with FinBERT

Advanced FinBERT language model enabled us to convert rich narratives into actionable structured data, offering fresh perspectives previously hidden in unstructured texts.

By using Azure ML's labeling tools, we effectively harnessed raw patient data, transforming it into labeled sets for targeted model training—our spotlight being incontinence detection, which showed promising results.

We collaborated with HUS Acamedic for its seamless Azure ML integration and data security. Patient data underwent rigorous review and masking, ensuring sensitive details remained confidential while maintaining data's analytical value.

All procedures were meticulously documented in Jupyter Notebooks, ensuring replicability. With our robust groundwork, minor tweaks can further enhance model accuracy and cater to an array of eFI subjects.
