Understanding a medical conversation between a patient and a physician poses unique natural language understanding challenge since it combines elements of standard open-ended conversation with very domain-specific elements that require expertise and medical knowledge. Summarization of medical conversations is a particularly important aspect of medical conversation understanding since it addresses a very real need in medical practice: capturing the most important aspects of a medical encounter… Expand

Medically Aware GPT-3 as a Data Generator for Medical Dialogue Summarization
TLDR
An algorithm to create synthetic training data with an explicit focus on capturing medically relevant information that produces high quality training data that can be combined with human labeled data to get summaries that are strongly preferable to those produced by models trained on human data alone both in terms of medical accuracy and coherency.

What’s in a Summary? Laying the Groundwork for Advances in Hospital-Course Summarization
TLDR
This work constructs an English, text-to-text dataset of 109,000 hospitalizations and their corresponding summary proxy: the clinician-authored “Brief Hospital Course” paragraph written as part of a discharge note, and identifies multiple implications for modeling this complex, multi-document summarization task.

Abstractive Dialogue Summarization with Sentence-Gated Modeling Optimized by Dialogue Acts
TLDR
The proposed model significantly improves the abstractive summarization performance compared to the state-of-the-art baselines on the AMI meeting corpus, demonstrating the usefulness of the interactive signal provided by dialogue acts. Expand
Generating SOAP Notes from Doctor-Patient Conversations
TLDR
This paper describes a unique dataset of patient visit records, consisting of transcripts, paired SOAP notes, and annotations marking noteworthy utterances that support each summary sentence, and presents the first study to evaluate complete pipelines for leveraging these transcripts to train machine learning model to generate these notes.

Get To The Point: Summarization with Pointer-Generator Networks
TLDR
A novel architecture that augments the standard sequence-to-sequence attentional model in two orthogonal ways, using a hybrid pointer-generator network that can copy words from the source text via pointing, which aids accurate reproduction of information, while retaining the ability to produce novel words through the generator.

Abstractive Text Summarization using Sequence-to-sequence RNNs and Beyond
TLDR
This work proposes several novel models that address critical problems in summarization that are not adequately modeled by the basic architecture, such as modeling key-words, capturing the hierarchy of sentence-to-word structure, and emitting words that are rare or unseen at training time. Expand
