Abstract:

Clinical text de-identification can potentially overlap with clinical information such as medical problems or treatments, therefore causing this information to be lost. In this study, we focused on the analysis of the overlap between the 2010 i2b2 NLP challenge concept annotations, with the PHI annotations of our best-of-breed clinical text de-identification application. Overall, 0.81% of the annotations overlapped exactly, and 1.78% partly overlapped.
