Recent interest in search tools for Clinical Decision Support (CDS) has dramatically increased. These tools help clinicians assess a medical situation by providing actionable information in the form of a select few highly relevant recent medical papers. Unlike traditional search, which is designed to deal with short queries, queries in CDS are long and narrative. We investigate the utility of applying pseudo-relevance feedback (PRF), a query expansion method that performs well in keyword-based… Expand
Retrieving Medical Literature for Clinical Decision Support
TLDR
This work applies query reformulation techniques to address literature search based on case reports and achieves a statistically significant improvement over the baseline and the state-of-the-art. Expand
Query Reformulation for Clinical Decision Support Search
TLDR
This work presents a query reformulation approach that addresses the unique formulation of case reports, making them suitable to be used on a general purpose search engine. Expand
The Knowledge and Language Gap in Medical Information Seeking
TLDR
This dissertation proposes several methods to overcome challenges to overcome the language and knowledge gap that affects health experts' ability to properly formulate information needs and improve search outcomes. Expand
Learning to reformulate long queries for clinical decision support
TLDR
This work introduces two systems designed to help retrieving medical literature, both of which receive a long, discursive clinical note as input query, and return highly relevant literature that could be used in support of clinical practice. Expand
A New Biomedical Passage Retrieval Framework for Laboratory Medicine: Leveraging Domain-specific Ontology, Multilevel PRF, and Negation Differential Weighting
TLDR
The study results indicate that the proposed CDS search framework specifically designed for passage retrieval of biomedical literature represents a practically viable choice for clinicians as it supports their decision-making processes by providing relevant passages extracted from the sources that they prefer to refer to, with improved performances. Expand
An interoperable clinical decision-support system for early detection of SIRS in pediatric intensive care using openEHR
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first openEHR based CDSS with interoperable knowledge bases and interfaces, which is technically reliable and capable in a real context, and facilitates clinical decision-support for a complex task. Expand
An experimental study and evaluation of a new architecture for clinical decision support : integrating the openEHR specifications for the Electronic Health Record with Bayesian networks
Healthcare informatics still lacks wide-scale adoption of intelligent decision support methods, despite continuous increases in computing power and methodological advances in scalable computationExpand
Comparative outcome studies of clinical decision support software: limitations to the practice of evidence-based system acquisition
TLDR
Transparency is necessary in purchasers' reporting of system defects and vendors' disclosure of marketing conflicts of interest to support methodologically sound studies, and the increased availability of guidance tools to assist purchasers with evidence-based purchases are recommended. Expand
Clinical decision support systems-based interventions to improve medication outcomes: A systematic literature review on features and effects
TLDR
Evidence is found that the use of medication-related CDSS improves clinical outcomes and, although computer systems such as C DSS may cause errors, in most cases, it has helped to improve prescribing, reduce side effects and drug interactions, and improve patient safety. Expand
Automated acute kidney injury alerts.
TLDR
The current body of knowledge on acute kidney injury is appraised and some outlines regarding research into and clinical aspects of CDS systems for AKI are provided. Expand

RefMed: relevance feedback retrieval system fo PubMed
TLDR
RefMed is a novel search system for PubMed, which supports relevance ranking by enabling relevance feedback on PubMed, and "tightly" integrates RankSVM within RDBMS and runs the rank learning and process on the fly with a response time of a few minutes. Expand
Feature Engineering and a Proposed Decision-Support System for Systematic Reviewers of Medical Evidence
TLDR
A computer-assisted, decision support system based on the methods proposed could substantially reduce the burden of screening citations for systematic review teams and solo reviewers and deliver quality assurance both by confirming concordant decisions and by naming studies associated with discordant decisions for further consideration.

Exploring criteria for successful query expansion in the genomic domain
TLDR
A query expansion framework is presented that improves Okapi baseline passage MAP performance by 185% and shows that choice of document ranking algorithm is the most important factor affecting retrieval performance on this dataset. Expand
A Task-Specific Query and Document Representation for Medical Records Search
TLDR
The effectiveness of the proposed novel technique to represent medical records and queries by focusing only on medical concepts essential for the information need of a medical search task is demonstrated, as it significantly outperforms a baseline where all concepts are represented, and markedly outperform a traditional term-based representation baseline.

Field trials of medical decision-aids: potential problems and solutions.
Only clinical trials can assess the impact of prototype medical decision-aids, but they are seldom performed before dissemination. Many problems are encountered when designing such studies, includingExpand
Searching in Medline: Query expansion and manual indexing evaluation
TLDR
It is shown that the best performing IR models is a probabilistic model developed within the Divergence from Randomness framework, which result in 170% enhancements in mean average precision when compared to the classical tf idf vector-space model. Expand
Medical question answering: translating medical questions into sparql queries
TLDR
This paper presents a complete question analysis approach including medical entity recognition, semantic relation extraction and automatic translation to SPARQL queries, which supports the fact that SParQL can represent a wide range of natural language questions in a question-answering perspective.

TREC 2004 Genomics Track Overview
TLDR
The TREC 2004 Genomics Track consisted of two tasks that focused on categorization of full-text documents, simulating the task of curators of the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) system and consisting of three subtasks. Expand
Assessing thesaurus-based query expansion using the UMLS Metathesaurus
TLDR
Thesaurus-based query expansion causes a decline in retrieval performance generally but improves it in specific instances, and further research must focus on identifying instances where performance improves and how it can be exploited by real users. Expand
Quality of life assessment.
TLDR
The use of both a general scale and a disease- (or age group) specific scale may provide the best assessment of overall QOL. Expand
