About Pentavere

Pentavere is a fast-growing health technology company reimagining the way medical evidence is used to improve health outcomes. Located in the MaRS Discovery District we work with clinicians,
researchers and innovative life science companies to solve challenging real-world health problems where answers exist in unstructured clinical notes. These can include free text progress notes within EMR systems, physician dictation notes, and digitized forms and documents such as lab and diagnostic reports.

Our breakthrough Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) proprietary technology engine called DARWENTM, quickly and economically extracts Real World Evidence trapped in large repositories of existing unstructured healthcare data. Often likened to a “chart audit on steroids”, these unstructured clinical notes are converted into “row and column” data
sets that are ready to use in diagnosis, analytics and predictive applications.

Health practitioners delivering front-line patient care, researchers building specific patient registries, and organisations interested in predictive health analytics acknowledge that over 80% of the health information that is created is not used to improve healthcare because the data is trapped in unstructured clinical narrative form. The lack of availability of ready to use/well curated health data is a major obstacle to improving our health care system.
