Medical errors are leading causes of death in the US and as such, prevention of these errors is paramount to promoting healthcare. Patient Safety Event reports are narratives describing potential adverse events to the patients and are important in identifying, and preventing medical errors. We present a neural network architecture for identifying the type of safety events which is the first step in understanding these narratives. Our proposed model is based on a soft neural attention model to… CONTINUE READING
