Anupam Goel is Advocate’s Vice President of Clinical Information. In his current role, he optimizes the electronic medical record to meet the needs of Advocate’s owned and affiliated physicians. His projects include reducing transcription costs using mobile technology and migrating from physician-specific to system-wide order sets. Prior to working at Advocate, Anupam was the co-Principal Investigator for the San Diego Beacon Collaborative, a multi-million dollar federal program to connect electronic health records across the San Diego metropolitan area. As co-Principal Investigator, Anupam directed efforts to establish a health information exchange and DIRECT mailboxes for physicians across the region. Today, Anupam will speak with us about using natural language processing to identify documentation improvement opportunities, specifically “copy-and-paste” behavior and identifying missing elements within operative reports.
