Mapping Medical Conversations

Discursis maps and visualizes medical conversations.   Adds insight to what really helps.   "...  The system can identify effective doctor-patient communication as well as poor communication. "Using a checklist style of consultation can hinder patient outcomes, and doctors who spend too much time on 'off-topic' banter can build good rapport, but do so at the expense of developing the health narrative" ... ' 

I can see this also being used to understand what information is needed to fill-in aspects of what still needs to be understood.  And direct interactions between devices and people.
