Gawron A, Gundlapalli AV, Gawron LM, Samore MH, Rubin MA, Jones MM, Weir CR. Natural Language Processing (NLP) Clinical Extraction Method. 2017 Jul 1.




Abstract:

This method was developed by IDEAS researchers, validated using VA records, and tested using a number of Use Case scenarios. VA examples include: detecting suspected pneumonia cases, extracting social determinants of health in cardiac cases (PI: Salomeh Keyhani MD, San Francisco VAMC); detecting patients exhibiting significant carotid stenosis (PI: Salomeh Keyhani MD, San Francisco VAMC); encoding the exam qualities and findings from colonoscopy patients (PI: Andrew Gawron MD PhD, Salt Lake City VAMC, gastroenterology); duration of pain in surgical patients (PI: Luke Martin MD, Salt Lake City VAMC, surgery); identifying contraceptive usage in high risk pregnancy populations (PI: Lori Gawron MD PhD, Salt Lake City VAMC, Obstetrics and Gynecology); and identifying reasons for exam to reduce low-value exam ordering practices within the VA (PI: Salomeh Keyhani MD, San Francisco VAMC; VA pilot-funded project)
