Under the hood

Clinical Language Understanding Technology

Working with physicians and language experts, Nym has developed technology that combines clinical expertise, computational linguistics and explainable AI to unlock vital data within medical records. Nym’s technology enables computers to understand the logical relations between various linguistic elements in medical records.

Incorporating the latest coding guidelines and leveraging a consistent, rules-based approach, the Nym engine instantly translates physician notes within medical records into structured clinical narratives. Using that narrative, Nym’s engine then assigns diagnostic and billing codes to each patient chart within seconds and with zero human intervention.

The algorithm that explains its rationale

Because CLU is based on fully deterministic computational linguistics and each step in the process is documented, Nym’s engine easily generates audit-ready, traceable documentation for every code it assigns.
