xCures - Technology Platform Transforms Complex Unstructured Medical Data
The xCures technology platform automatically creates a comprehensive outline of a cancer patient's medical history generated from the hospitals and clinics visited. Patients get immediate access to the care summary and all of their medical data in one easy-to-access place, greatly facilitating the finding of promising treatment options.
The xCures platform transforms complex unstructured medical data directly from the patient’s medical records into structured data suitable for analysis and review. Our A.I. engine can actively cross-reference this data against the vast digital library of oncology data to match patients with potential treatments. This empowers patients and their oncologists to make more informed and effective treatment decisions.
At the center of the xCures platform is our highly specialized Natural Language Processor (NLP) that can read, interpret, and encode raw unstructured patient data from anywhere in the United States. Our NLP speaks the language of oncology. The result is structured data in a crisp care summary for use by patients, doctors, and algorithms to find and speed up access to promising treatment options.
Cancer researchers also get value from the xCures platform. The automated aggregation, classification, and structuring of patients' medical records into longitudinal datasets which accomplish FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, and source data verification, can be a great time-saver and accelerate the approval course of promising treatments.
- 1,700,000 cancer diagnoses/year
- 9,000 potential treatment options
- 150,000 scientific articles on cancer treatment
- Medical records of up to 1,000 pages
- Yet only 13,000 oncologists and 24h in a day…
To fully integrate cancer research and care, xCures has assembled a multi-disciplinary, boundary-pushing team spanning A.I., data science, and clinical research. The team has solved three of the biggest challenges in applying A.I. to oncology:
- Medical data processing: We automated mechanisms to get a deep clinical understanding of cancer patients and structure longitudinal data without adding any additional administrative burden to the system.
- Treatment indexing: We created a living master catalog of all the potential cancer treatments, including individual interventions and combination regimens, expert-sourced medical rationales, and access pathways.
- Patient-Treatment matching: We developed a suite of tools to match patients to a shortlist of appropriate options using NLP, and rank them using Bayesian predictive models operating on real outcomes data, and expert insights mined from Virtual Tumor Boards.
In the fight against cancer, information is the most powerful weapon.
The xCures platform arms cancer patients and their oncologists with the tools they need to make the most informed point-of-care decisions.
Many patients and their loved ones will spend countless hours combing through the thousands of active clinical trials and endless anecdotal internet stories in hopes of finding relevant information and potential treatment options. Sadly, this is most often a futile effort that barely scratches the surface of the endless sea of information.
The xCures platform significantly automates the search for effective treatments using advanced A.I. technology. The medical data from a patient’s medical records are automatically structured into a format that is easy to analyze and review by patients, doctors, and algorithms.
Based on that, our technology can create a personalized list of treatment options, complete with rationales and ways to access them.
The xCures platform is live – growing, learning, and expanding daily from new patients. Patients and their care team benefit from the collective data, knowledge and experiences of everyone in the network, and in return, provide their data to the platform for future patient benefit.
With medical knowledge doubling every 10 years, oncologists can augment their experiential and learned knowledge with the power of the xCures platform. xCures’ A.I. finds, suggests, and predicts the outcomes of several alternative treatment options in real time.
Access to the xCures platform is provided free of charge to help patients and physicians find the most effective treatments for fighting their cancer diagnosis.
xCures is building a community of support and data that patients and their doctors can continually use and share throughout their treatment.
xCures provides access portals for both patients and medical providers:
