Exercise, employment, volunteering, attitude, socially active, driving, Independence, chronic pain, allergies, active or sedentary lifestyle, complex poly-pharmacy, memory loss or cognitive decline, living conditions, ambulation aids, gait imbalance or history of falls, weight loss / gain history, MD notes indicating general status decline, Social Isolation etc. More than 40 factors are extracted for the underwriter rating.

Condition chronologies are segmented into primary and secondary depending on the effect of the condition on mortality. Each condition is extracted for grouping with treatment or testing dates. Abstract identifies the earliest known and most current disease status mentioned in records which help in establishing relevance. Patient name validation ensures pages belong to the insured. Additionally, ICD 9 and ICD 10 codes are both identified based on code or disease identification.

Medical data abstract experts at Telegenisys then create a structured presentation based on client’s requirements. M.D. review notes if requested, abstract author, contact information and quality assurance detail.
