Please join Smartlogic and Knowledgent for a three-part webinar series that will use case studies to show how businesses have found value in content. The series, titled "Hidden in Plain Sight: Uncover the business value of your unstructured content" will feature a roster of speakers who are well known in the semantic web industry.Hear Richard Pinder, senior vice president of Smartlogic, Christine Connors, senior consultant of Knowledgent and Frank Norman, senior IT executive of Knowldegent speak in "Slips, Trips and Falls: Proactive care through predictive analytics." They will talk about a health insurer who discovered easily-realized savings in patient care after looking at caregivers' notes about patients' home environments. They combined information pulled from structured data -- such as medication type, age, and known health conditions -- with information pulled from unstructured data gathered through text analytics – such as loose carpets and the absence of handrails.
Through this process, they found such patterns as patients who were taking at least one drug known to increase the risk of falls, and whose house visit notes indicated environmental contributions to falls. From there, they were able to identify patients who could benefit from home repairs and improvements and increased social intervention to reduce the chance of falls and their associated costs.
