Expertise Knowledge Platform (EKP) links Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's (CHOP) employee database with external data sources (currently NIH RePORTER and PubMed) to establish an up-to-date database of CHOP's research expertise.

Developed in a joint effort between the Tsui Laboratory and Innovation Ecosystem to increase collaboration and fully utilize in-house resources at CHOP, this novel application utilizes machine learning and natural language processing to integrate large public and proprietary databases into a consolidated distributed database that is updated daily. Users may search EKP to generate summary reports that can be managed and refined or downloaded to Excel.

CHOP Research Institute, National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Corps, and NSF Rapid Response Research funding supported development of the EKP.
