TEMPO (Twitter Exploration for Mining Patient Opinions) – InnovateUK 2016 funded project.

We are using supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods for the extraction of patient opinion data from social media. Primarily working with data from Twitter, but also Facebook and Instagram, we are investigating the feasibility of extracting insightful data from social media that can provide indicators of patient care performance in healthcare services.
