Abstract : One of the tasks a Clinical Decision Support (CDS) system is designed to solve is retrieving the most relevant and actionable literature for a given medical case report. In this work, we present a query reformulation approach that addresses the unique formulation of case reports, making them suitable to be used on a general purpose search engine. Furthermore, we introduce five reranking algorithms designed to re-order a list of retrieved literature to better match the type of… 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
Optimization Method for Weighting Explicit and Latent Concepts in Clinical Decision Support Queries
TLDR
Experiments indicate that applying the proposed method for representing verbose domain-specific queries based on weighted unigram, bigram, and multi-term concepts in the query itself, as well as extracted from the top retrieved documents and external knowledge bases results in significant improvement of retrieval accuracy over state-of-the-art methods for ad hoc and medical IR.

Learning from Medical Summaries: The University of Michigan at TREC 2015 Clinical Decision Support Track
TLDR
The experiments showed that the ensemble approach could improve the overall results by boosting the ranking of articles that are near the top of several single ranked lists. 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
TREC 2015 paper submission UWM-UO @ 2015 Clinical Decision Support Track: QE by Weighted Keywords using PRF
In the 2015 CDS track, the queries have been expanded in four different ways which we called four different modes. The results shows statistically significantly improvement in terms of infAP, infNDCGExpand
State-of-the-art in biomedical literature retrieval for clinical cases: a survey of the TREC 2014 CDS track
TLDR
An overview of the task, a survey of the information retrieval methods employed by the participants, an analysis of the results, and a discussion on the future directions for this challenging yet important task are provided. Expand
Bayesian approach to incorporating different types of biomedical knowledge bases into information retrieval systems for clinical decision support in precision medicine
TLDR
Experimental results on a publicly available benchmark provided by the 2017 TREC precision medicine track indicate that the proposed probabilistic framework is effective at utilizing both genomic and textual information in queries to improve the accuracy of IR systems for CDS in PM through query expansion.

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

TLDR
An in-depth statistical analysis of queries issued from IR evaluation compaigns namely Text REtrieval Conference (TREC) and Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum (CLEF) devoted for different medical tasks within controlled evaluation settings is undertaken. Expand
Contextualized Semantic Maps for Retrieval and Summarization of Biomedical Literature
TLDR
This dissertation describes Casama, a system for creating "contextualized semantic maps" to represent the current state of scientific knowledge in the domain of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Expand
