Abstract:

Healthcare has many challenges in form of monitoring and predicting adverse events as healthcare associated infections or adverse drug events. When and how many have occurred, how can one predict them? This talk will describe the research carried out at the Clinical text mining group at DSV/Stockholm University and the future research that will be carried out. Topics are detection of symptoms, diseases, body parts and drugs from Swedish electronic patient records, including deciding on the certainty of a symptom or disease and detecting adverse (drug) events. Current and future research are detecting early symptoms of cancer and de-identification of electronic patient records for secondary use. An overview of other researchers and groups in Scandinavia and Europe will be presented.
