Abstract

We presented a solution to the common problem of the loss of information during and after doctor-patient consultation. Our invention aims to detect, extract, highlight and provide key information useful to the patient and the doctor via audio recordings and actual cognitive technologies such as audio-text conversion, tone and text analysis.

Cognitive reporting of doctor-patient consultation

It is common after a consultation with a doctor that a patient does not remember all information like results, prescriptions, explanations, commentaries or upcoming appointments due to stress, gravity of the condition or other causes. Our invention takes care of this problem by recording the voices during the consultation and detects, extracts and highlights useful information for the patient. At the end of the procedure key information are made remotely available to the patient.

    Detect, extract and highlight key information useful to the patient (results, explanations, prescriptions, upcoming appointments) from an audio recording of a doctor-patient consultation using actual cognitive technologies such as audio-text conversion, tone and text analysis. At the end of the procedure, the patient can access upon request at these key information (text, audio or others) via internet connection.

Acquisition:

    An audio recording (voices of both parties) is made during the doctor-patient consultation with the agreement of both parties (labelled as recording device in the next picture, it could be a laptop, mobile, …). This audio recording is stored in IT infrastructure (on premises or in a cloud based infrastructure) and simply labelled with date and names.

Processing:

    Several cognitive based computer treatments are applied to the audio recording of the consultation. First text conversion is applied to the entire recording. Then text and tone analysis can isolate the key moments of the consultation (results, prognosis, treatment, dates and times of future consultations, names of other doctors to contact). Th...
