Semantic Health uses machine learning to automatically analyze unstructured data on patients, extract insights from the data and make it easier for hospitals to use the information. Efficiently analyzing data was something hospitals need to do well if they want to treat patients properly, especially during a global health crisis. The company has spent the last year working with a small group of hospitals to test and validate the product remotely.
