Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To summarize the best papers in the field of Knowledge Representation and Management (KRM).

METHODS:

A comprehensive review of medical informatics literature was performed to select some of the most interesting papers of KRM and natural language processing (NLP) published in 2013.

RESULTS:

Four articles were selected, one focuses on Electronic Health Record (EHR) interoperability for clinical pathway personalization based on structured data. The other three focus on NLP (corpus creation, de-identification, and co-reference resolution) and highlight the increase in NLP tools performances.

CONCLUSION:

NLP tools are close to being seriously concurrent to humans in some annotation tasks. Their use could increase drastically the amount of data usable for meaningful use of EHR.

KEYWORDS:

Medical informatics; knowledge representation; natural language processing; ontology; semantic web
