Blood Test Results OCR

 

This article walks you through the building process of an OCR API that extracts data from Blood Test Results using our deep learning engine. It will work for any document issued by any laboratory. 

 

 

Prerequisites

  1. You’ll need a free beta account. Sign up and confirm your email to login.
  2. You’ll need at least 20 Blood Test Results images or pdfs to train your OCR.

 

 

Define your Blood Test Results use case

 

First, we’re going to define what fields we want to extract from your Blood Test Results. 

 

 

Blood Test Results OCR API

 

 

  • Patient name: The full name of the patient 

 

  • Date of Report: The date of the report creation

 

  • ID Number: The patient ID Number

 

  • Sodium Results: The amount of Sodium the patient has in his organism according to the blood test results. 

 

  • Calcium Results: The amount of Calcium the patient has in his organism according to the blood test results. 

 

 

That’s it for our use case. Feel free to add any other relevant data to fit your requirements.

 

 

Deploy your API

 

Once you have defined the list of fields you want to extract, head over to the platform and press the ‘build a new endpoint’ button.

 

You land now on the setup page. Here is the image you can use for setting up the API, and my setup looks like this:

 

 

Set up your Blood Test Results OCR API

 

Once you’re ready, click on the “next step” button. We are going to specify the data types for each of the fields we want our API to extract.


 

To go further, you can download this json config to set up your data model or do it manually.


 

Patient name: type String that never contains numeric characters.

Once you’re done setting up your data model, press the Data model ready? start training button at the top of the screen.

 

 

Train your Blood Test Results OCR

 

 

Deep learning Blood Test Results OCR API

 

 

You’re all set! 

 

Now is the time to train your Blood Test Results, deep learning model, in the Training section of our API. 

 

 

In a few hours (minutes if you're fast), you’ll get your first model trained and will be able to use your custom OCR API for parsing Blood Test Results in your application.
