Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A text-analytic tool has been developed that accepts clinical medical data as input in order to produce patient details. The integrated tool has the following four characteristics. 1) It has a graphical user interface. 2) It has a free-text search tool that is designed to retrieve records using keywords such as "MI" for myocardial infarction. The result set is a display of those sentences in the medical records that contain the keywords. 3) It has three tools to classify patients based on the likelihood of being diagnosed for myocardial infarction, hypertension, or their smoking status. 4) A summary is generated for each patient selected. Large medical data sets provided by the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences were used during the project.
