How Comprehend Works!

Comprehend Flow diagram
Let's start with an inbound fax. The fax arrives and is encoded into a readable document (tiff or pdf). Then we pass it to the Fax optimized OCR Engine
The document is scanned and all readable text/barcodes and data is read and set aside for later processing. It is then passed to the document classifier engine.
Here we examine the documents and attempt identification of the type of document. It is matched against a known template library. We can also develop custom templates for any document.
Now we extract the data intelligently using a known template or flexible template if the document is free-text. We rate the document for clarity and attribute a confidence score.
This is an optional step where a human reviewer can manually review the document for any errors and correct data before submission to the data engine.
Here we format the validated content into a handful or formats. Most typically json / xml or other structured format including FHIR compatible format.
The structured data is now delivered to the appropriate endpoint or process. Whether that is a FHIR enabled EHR or API endpoint for immediate ingestion
