ALTE: AI for Literacy, Transparency and Engagement

The goal of this flagship project is to advance patient literacy, engagement and healthcare transparency through natural language processing of medical text and general jargon or layperson descriptions of medical conditions. Success of this flagship will enable patients to be better informed in making healthcare decisions, decrease call center and provider time in translating medical terminologies and ultimately provide betterĀ care outcomes and value.
