SILICON VALLEY: An American scientist of Indian origin was named ‘Inventor of the Year’ for his work in developing a new system that utilizes data to improve patient care and clinical decisions.

R Bharat Rao, senior director of Engineering Research Development, Computer-aided Diagnosis and Therapy Group at Siemens Medical Solutions, is one of 12 Siemens inventors to receive the award.

Rao is based in Malvern, Pennsylvania and was chosen for his work in developing an automated data collection and analysis tool, REMIND (Reliable Extraction and Meaningful Inference from Nonstructured Data). This helps the staff to combine various healthcare information of the patient to personalize patient care plans and increase patient outcomes.

‘‘Much of the data in the healthcare system is not in a format that can be readily accessed or applied at the point of care,’’ Rao, an IIT graduate from Madras, said, adding ‘‘for example, key clinical information is stored as written text in patient records, discharge summaries, progress notes and radiology reports.’’
