Abstract : In making clinical decisions, physicians often seek out information about how to best care for their patients. Information relevant to a physician can be related to a variety of clinical tasks such as determining a patient s most likely diagnosis given a list of symptoms, deciding on the most effective treatment plan for a patient having a known condition, and determining if a particular test is indicated for a given situation. In some cases, physicians can find the information they… 

Wikipedia-Based Automatic Diagnosis Prediction in Clinical Decision Support Systems

An automatic diagnosis prediction method to enhance the retrieval in a clinical decision support system, where the evidence for the prediction is extracted from Wikipedia, and the method reaches the best performance among all submitted runs.

Medical Question Answering for Clinical Decision Support

A novel framework for answering medical questions in the spirit of TREC-CDS by first discovering the answer and then selecting and ranking scientific articles that contain the answer is presented.

Impact of a Search Engine on Clinical Decisions Under Time and System Effectiveness Constraints: Research Protocol

96 practicing clinicians and final year medical students are presented with 16 clinical questions and can use a scientific literature search engine to find evidence to support their answers, to understand the impact of using a scientific medical literature search system on clinical decision making.

DC3 -- A Diagnostic Case Challenge Collection for Clinical Decision Support

DC3 is presented, a collection of 31 extremely difficult diagnostic case challenges, manually compiled and solved by clinical experts, and a number of temporally ordered physician-generated observations alongside the eventually confirmed true diagnosis are presented.

Siena's Clinical Decision Assistant

The entire SCDA system was built by a team of undergraduate researchers working together for just ten weeks during the summer of 2015 and its participation in the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) Clinical Decision Support Track (CDST) of 2015 is discussed.

DC 3 – A Diagnostic Case Challenge Collection for Clinical Decision Support

DC3 is presented, a collection of 31 extremely difficult diagnostic case challenges, manually compiled and solved by clinical experts, and a number of temporally ordered physician-generated observations alongside the eventually confirmed true diagnosis are presented.

Siena's Clinical Decision Assistant with Machine Learning

Siena’s Clinical Decision Assistant (SCDA) system and its participation in the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) Clinical Decision Support Track (CDST) of 2016, which aims to link medical cases to information that is pertinent to patient care, is discussed.

A document-based neural relevance model for effective clinical decision support

This work proposes a document-based neural relevance model (DNRM), addressing the mismatch by utilizing the content of relevant articles to complement the medical records, and results confirm the superior performance of the proposed DNRM model.

Automatic Decision Support for Clinical Diagnostic Literature Using Link Analysis in a Weighted Keyword Network

A novel approach to recommending articles from the medical literature that support clinical diagnostic decision-making, giving detailed descriptions of the associated ideas and principles and the process of by which keywords were measured and relevant articles identified based on link analysis in a weighted keywords network.

Preliminary analysis shows that the corpus filtering method was too strict and has a negative impact on recall.

Research Paper: Answering Physicians' Clinical Questions: Obstacles and Potential Solutions

Clinical resource developers could use the recommendations made by practicing physicians to provide resources that are more useful for answering clinical questions, as physicians do not seek answers to many of their questions and often cannot find the information they need.

LIST at TREC 2015 Clinical Decision Support Track: Question Analysis and Unsupervised Result Fusion

This paper describes the use of two knowledge sources: MeSH and DB Wikipedia for question expansion and the simplification of questions by removing information about the patient and negation and concludes that query expansion using Mesh and DBpedia improves the results.

Concept based Information Retrieval for Clinical Case Summaries

Overall, the major innovations are query transformation using diagnosis information inferred from Google searching of health resources, concept based query and document representation, and pruning of concepts based on semantic types and groups.

FDUMedSearch at TREC 2015 Clinical Decision Support Track

The FDUMedSearch team used Indri as the retrieval engine, which implemented query likelihood method as the baseline, and query expansion using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), pseudo relevance feedback and classification were used to enhance the retrieval performance.
