Viewpoint Paper: Exploring and Developing Consumer Health Vocabularies
This paper presents the point of view that CHV development is practical and necessary for extending research on informatics-based tools to facilitate consumer health information seeking, retrieval, and understanding and briefly describes a distributed, bottom-up approach. Expand
Discovering Consumer Health Expressions from Consumer-Contributed Content
The proposed semi-automatic method that employs Principal Components Analysis (PCA) and Logistic Regression for identifying consumer health expressions from consumer-contributed content in social media is effective and can help to extend Consumer Health Vocabulary and to enhance the performance of Adverse Drug Reactions signals detection. Expand
Classifying User Intention and Social Support Types in Online Healthcare Discussions
Genetic algorithms to combine classifiers with different feature sets and optimize the classification results are developed and it is found that for post classification, integrating text and health features could achieve the highest precision, recall and F1 measure. Expand
Postmarketing Drug Safety Surveillance Using Publicly Available Health-Consumer-Contributed Content in Social Media
This work proposes the association rule mining approach to identify the association between a drug and an adverse drug reaction and uses the alerts posted by Food and Drug Administration as the gold standard to evaluate the effectiveness of this approach. Expand
Social media mining for drug safety signal detection
This work proposes to use association mining and Proportional Reporting Ratios to mine the associations between drugs and adverse reactions from the user contributed content in social media and shows that the metrics leverage, lift, and PRR are all promising to detect the adverse drug reactions reported by FDA.
