Annotation can identify critical information within clinical notes.A key annotation step is mapping phrases to concepts of interest.We assess the impact of including token order as a feature on mapping performance.Including token order improves precision and recall over a bag-of-words classifier.The algorithm is scalable and should support near-real-time, automated annotation. ...

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) performs over 800,000 disability exams and distributes over $37 billion in disability benefits per year. VA developed and deployed a computer-based disability exam documentation system in order to improve exam report quality and timeliness. We conducted a randomized controlled trial comparing joint disability examinations ...

January 2006 International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies: Volume 1 Issue 1, January 2006
Publisher: Inderscience Publishers
Citation Count: 9

Using archetypes is a promising approach in providing semantic interoperability among healthcare systems. To realise archetype based interoperability, the healthcare systems need to discover the existing archetypes, based on their semantics; annotate their archetypes with ontologies; compose templates from archetypes and retrieve corresponding data from the underlying medical information systems. ...

October 2002 Journal of Biomedical Informatics: Volume 35 Issue 5/6, October 2002
Publisher: Elsevier Science
Citation Count: 2

Compositional (post-coordinated) terminologies are one potential solution to the problem of content completeness. However, they have the potential to render data incomparable. For computers to determine that compositional expressions are comparable, the relations between the composed components that are understood implicitly by human readers must be represented explicitly for computer ...
Keywords: ICD9-CM, medical informatics, SNOMED, controlled health terminologies, description logic
