We evaluated our method on the 2008 Integrating Informatics with Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) obesity challenge [10], a multilabel classification task focused on obesity and its 15 most common comorbidities (diseases). In this work, we focus on the obesity challenge [12]. Also, classification systems can be used to support other applications in healthcare, including reimbursement, public health reporting, quality of care assessment… We can also see that CNN model with word embeddings only performs better than the Perl implementation in intuitive task, which means using a deep learning model can learn effective features for better classification. In recent years, many researchers have worked in the clinical text classification field and published their results in academic journals. Our method contains three steps: (1). Medical subdomain classification of clinical notes using a machine learning-based natural language processing approach. The unified medical language system (umls): integrating biomedical terminology. The experimental results show that our method outperforms state-of-the-art methods for the challenge.

In: Proceedings of the ICML/UAI/COLT Workshop on Machine Learning for Health-Care Applications: 2008. For some diseases, our proposed method and Solt’s system achieved a very high Micro F1 but a low Macro F1. This work was supported in part by NIH Grant 1R21LM012618-01. The concatenated hidden representations are fed into a fully-connected layer, then a dropout and a ReLU activation layer. We learn a CNN on positive trigger phrases and UMLS CUIs in training records, then classify test examples using the trained CNN model. Nevertheless, we run our model 10 times and observed that the overall Macro F1 scores and Micro F1 scores are significantly higher than SVM and Logistic Regression (p value <0.05 based on student t test), which verifies the effectiveness of CUIs embeddings again. Che et al. Demner-Fushman D, Chapman WW, McDonald CJ. Although deep learning techniques have been well studied in clinical data mining, most of these works do not focus on long clinical text classification (e.g., an entire clinical note) or utilize knowledge sources, while we propose a novel knowledge-guided deep learning method for clinical text classification. LY and YL designed the study and wrote the manuscript.

Recurrent neural networks for classifying relations in clinical notes. Several text classification approaches, such as supervised machine learning (SML) or rule-based approaches, have been utilized to obtain beneficial information from free-text clinical reports. The textual task is to identify explicit evidences of the diseases, while the intuitive task focused on the prediction of the disease status when the evidence is not explicitly mentioned. Clinical text de-identification enables collaborative research while protecting patient privacy and confidentiality; however, concerns persist about the reduction in the utility of the de-identified text for information extraction and machine learning tasks. Privacy Primary objective is to assess the anti-tumor activity of single agent odronextamab as measured by the objective response rate (ORR) according to the Lugano Classification of response in malignant lymphoma (Cheson, 2014) and as assessed by independent central review in each of the following B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL) subgroups: Gehrmann S, Dernoncourt F, Li Y, Carlson ET, Wu JT, et al.Comparing deep learning and concept extraction based methods for patient phenotyping from clinical narratives. A systematic literature review of clinical coding and classification systems has been conducted by Stanfill et al. Association for Computational Linguistics. Many approaches for clinical text classification rely on biomedical knowledge sources [3]. The datasets used in selected studies were categorized into four distinct types. For many error cases, our method predicted N or U when no positive trigger phrases are identified, but the real labels are Y. We would like to thank i2b2 National Center for Biomedical Computing funded by U54LM008748, for providing the clinical records originally prepared for the Shared Tasks for Challenges in NLP for Clinical Data organized by Dr. Ozlem Uzuner. Thus, the Unmentioned (U) class label was excluded from the intuitive task. Solt’s system can identify very informative trigger phrases with different contexts (positive, negative or uncertain). identifying trigger phrases; (2). For some other cases, our method predicted Y when positive trigger phrases are identified, but the real labels are N or U. The results in the textual task are not improved when using word embeddings only, because the textual task needs explicit evidences to label the records, and the positive trigger phrases contain enough information, therefore CNN with word embeddings only may not be particularly helpful. Our goal is to label each document as either Present (Y), Absent (N), Questionable (Q) or Unmentioned (U) for each disease. Weng W-H, Wagholikar KB, McCray AT, Szolovits P, Chueh HC.
