Abstract: Audio recordings of clinic visits result in greater recall, understanding, and self-management for patients. Yet, unstructured recordings are difficult to navigate. We are developing the Open Recording Automated Logging System (ORALS), a platform that uses natural language processing to 'tag' key aspects of the clinic visit and links to credible, online resources of related medical information. Upon completion, patients will have access to a personal health library, powered by ORALS, to better manage their health.

Learning Objective 1: Attendees will become aware of the phenomena of patients audio-recording clinic visits, and the potential applications of informatics to maximize the value of these recordings to improve self-management and health outcomes.
