CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Narrative Science, the leader in automated narrative generation for the enterprise, today announced that NHS Choices, the official website of the National Health Service and managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, has chosen the Quill™ Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform to provide critical information to the general public via its website. Quill will allow NHS Choices to provide constituents with immediate and accurate access to detailed, plain-English descriptions about more than 50,000 facilities that provide services ranging from patient visits to extended hospital stays. With this information, England’s citizens will have the power to determine which facilities best serve their needs and to make decisions that improve the quality of their lives and the effectiveness of their health care.
“With the Quill platform, information contained in charts, tables and databases will be simplified and presented to the public in plain-English descriptions that will enable them to make a more informed choice about their care,” said Cleveland Henry, Delivery Director, NHS Choices.
With Quill, NHS Choices will transform its vast and comprehensive data stored as numbers in spreadsheets and tables into narrative descriptions that anyone can read, understand and use to make decisions. By deploying a platform that eliminates complex tables and spreadsheets, NHS Choices will also have a way to make information about conditions, treatments, services and public health campaigns more available and useful to its audience.
“Enormous volumes of data are overwhelming organizations across every industry. Even those organizations with significant IT resources and teams of analysts and data scientists struggle to turn data into meaningful information that can be used to provide the right information to the right audience,” said Stuart Frankel, CEO at Narrative Science. “Our work with NHS Choices shows how organizations can leverage their data by turning it into useful information that large numbers of people can easily understand and use to make well-informed decisions.”
