An Emergency Medical Services Clinical Audit System driven by Named Entity Recognition from Deep Learning

  title={An Emergency Medical Services Clinical Audit System driven by Named Entity Recognition from Deep Learning},
  author={Wang Han and Wesley Yeung and Angeline Tung and Joey Tay Ai Meng and Davin Ryanputera and Mengling Feng and Shalini Arulanadam},
Clinical performance audits are routinely performed in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to ensure adherence to treatment protocols, to identify individual areas of weakness for remediation, and to discover systemic deficiencies to guide the development of the training syllabus. At present, these audits are performed by manual chart review which is time-consuming and laborious. In this paper, we present an automatic audit system based on both the structured and unstructured ambulance case… Expand


Challenges in clinical natural language processing for automated disorder normalization
DNorm-C is a high performing, open source system for disorders in clinical text, and a promising step toward NER and normalization methods that are trainable to a wide variety of domains and entities. Expand
A Supervised Named-Entity Extraction System for Medical Text
A supervised CRF model that based on a rich set of features learns to predict disorder named entities, a named-entity recognition system specialized in the medical domain, and a system that can perform NER on medical text. Expand
Physician Medical Direction andClinical Performance at an Established Emergency Medical Services System
It is suggested that implementation of a physician medical direction is associated with improved clinical indicators and overall quality of care at an established EMS system. Expand
TEXT2TABLE: Medical Text Summarization System Based on Named Entity Recognition and Modality Identification
Experimental results demonstrate empirically that syntactic information can contribute to the method's accuracy and an SVM-based classifier using syntactic Information is proposed. Expand
MIMIC-III, a freely accessible critical care database
MIMIC-III (‘Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care’) is a large, single-center database comprising information relating to patients admitted to critical care units at a large tertiary careExpand
Google's Neural Machine Translation System: Bridging the Gap between Human and Machine Translation
GNMT, Google's Neural Machine Translation system, is presented, which attempts to address many of the weaknesses of conventional phrase-based translation systems and provides a good balance between the flexibility of "character"-delimited models and the efficiency of "word"-delicited models. Expand
Early results for Named Entity Recognition with Conditional Random Fields, Feature Induction and Web-Enhanced Lexicons
This work has shown that conditionally-trained models, such as conditional maximum entropy models, handle inter-dependent features of greedy sequence modeling in NLP well. Expand
SemEval-2013 Task 9 : Extraction of Drug-Drug Interactions from Biomedical Texts (DDIExtraction 2013)
There were 14 teams who submitted a total of 38 runs for the DDIExtraction 2013 Shared Task challenge and the best result reported was F1 of 71.5% and 65.1% for the second one. Expand
BERT: Pre-training of Deep Bidirectional Transformers for Language Understanding
A new language representation model, BERT, designed to pre-train deep bidirectional representations from unlabeled text by jointly conditioning on both left and right context in all layers, which can be fine-tuned with just one additional output layer to create state-of-the-art models for a wide range of tasks.

Bidirectional LSTM-CRF Models for Sequence Tagging
This work is the first to apply a bidirectional LSTM CRF model to NLP benchmark sequence tagging data sets and it is shown that the BI-LSTM-CRF model can efficiently use both past and future input features thanks to a biddirectional L STM component. Expand
