Cohort Builder v3.1 

Deep 6 AI’s Cohort Builder is a software tool researchers can use to find more, better-matching patients for clinical trials. It allows research staff to search structured and unstructured data in the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), looking at millions of documents in a matter of seconds. Once you’ve built your search query, a list of matching patients is generated. The source documentation for these matched patients can be reviewed in the tool in minutes, so you can start your trial on day one with a full list.


We’ve been listening to feedback from our hospital users, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve built many of the most often requested features into this latest release.



We have a new way to find patients that your search is missing: Partial Matches. Is there a measurement missing? The patient may match your criteria following a screen. Are criteria mentioned but negated? Review to make sure the negation is correct.

If you were looking for “cancer” and a patient’s record included the word “cancer” next to the phrase “no history of,” this would show up as a Partial Match instead of Full Match. Our software is already providing you a list of exact matches but we want you to be able to review partial matches so you don’t miss any patients that might be vital to your study.


Want quick answers to how much you are using our software? Our new Usage Dashboard lets leadership and administrators see what work is actually getting done on our software.


We added a filter that lets you run searches on specific Document Type. You were already able to search all of the unstructured data in a medical record, but now you can have an even higher level of confidence that you found what you’re looking for.

Want to limit your search to patients who have evidence of cancer documented in pathology reports? Looking for behavioral health evidence in the physician notes? It’s never been easier to find better-matching patients.




We’ve completely revamped the Build Query page to a new 2-pane design, with your Criteria on the left and your Query on the right. In addition to refining concept selection, we’ve exposed all the options for editing your criteria and query in the form of “Modes” above each pane. This means nothing is hidden, letting you create and edit your query faster than ever.
