What is CHANL?

The Chart Review Tool Powered by NLP (CHANL) is designed to facilitate chart review of narrative text notes from the electronic medical records (EMR). It can be used to perform intelligent searches not only for multiple keywords simultaneously but can automatically identify other terms and concepts related to the keyword in the notes.

Current users have found this to significantly improve the efficiency and accuracy of chart reviews. This tool was developed by Dr. Tianrun Cai, part of the VERITY Bioinformatics Resource Core team.
