Author information

Hopital Avicenne, APHP, Bobigny, France.


Digestive endoscopies, along with all medical procedures in France are coded with the CCAM. This task is done by the physicians, is time-consuming and requires a good knowledge of the terminology besides a medical knowledge. This method offers an automatic coding of endoscopic procedures from free-text reports. Thanks to a supervised learning method, the reports are coded with an average precision and recall of 0.92 on a 1639 texts corpus.
