Introduction To Medical Coding, Introductory Module, Veronica F. Mcgowan

Faculty Articles & Research

In our increasingly global economy, manufacturers and distributers sending and receiving goods are frustrated by the reality of multiple languages. As an example of corporate coding, proactive management in an automotive company have invented a coding system where each car type has its own identification code with associated words that describe the product. Therefore, they can be confident that anyone referring to ID 4523 is describing a four-door vehicle (4000 level), compact vehicle (500), black color (20) with leather interior (3). This example is analogous to clinical or medical coding.

Finding The Narrative In Incident Reports, La'eeqa Aslam 2018 The University of San Francisco

Finding The Narrative In Incident Reports, La'eeqa Aslam

Master's Projects and Capstones

The Progress Foundation, as licensed by the state of California and the Community Care Licensing, is required to use incident reports for internal audits and remain in compliance as a health facility. Incident reports are used to record events or accidents that have occurred within an organization. Often times, reports are made, handed off, and given from the residence home to the Community Care Licensing with little to no information of how an incident was managed. The Progress Foundation is working towards tracking information from the incident reports to improve internal management and understand the trends in the reports.

Phr: Patient Health Record, Quinn Nelson 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Phr: Patient Health Record, Quinn Nelson

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

The rapid development of information technology systems has expanded into multiple disciplines and results in systems that are limited by initial design and implementation: the Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) space is no different. The introduction of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system has changed the way healthcare operates. Initial designs of these systems were focused on serving the needs of insurance companies and healthcare billing departments. Research shows that the design of EHR systems negatively impact provider-patient interactions and the care they receive. This capstone project capitalizes on the collaboration efforts between UNO and UNMC – by joining a research group ...


Extraction Of Information Related To Adverse Drug Events From Electronic Health Record Notes: Design Of An End-To-End Model Based On Deep Learning, Fei Li, Weisong Liu, Hong Yu 2018 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Extraction Of Information Related To Adverse Drug Events From Electronic Health Record Notes: Design Of An End-To-End Model Based On Deep Learning, Fei Li, Weisong Liu, Hong Yu

Open Access Articles

BACKGROUND: Pharmacovigilance and drug-safety surveillance are crucial for monitoring adverse drug events (ADEs), but the main ADE-reporting systems such as Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System face challenges such as underreporting. Therefore, as complementary surveillance, data on ADEs are extracted from electronic health record (EHR) notes via natural language processing (NLP). As NLP develops, many up-to-date machine-learning techniques are introduced in this field, such as deep learning and multi-task learning (MTL). However, only a few studies have focused on employing such techniques to extract ADEs.

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to design a deep learning model for extracting ADEs and ...

Learning For Clinical Named Entity Recognition Without Manual Annotations, Omid Ghiasvand, Rohit J. Kate 2018 University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Learning For Clinical Named Entity Recognition Without Manual Annotations, Omid Ghiasvand, Rohit J. Kate

Health Informatics & Administration Faculty Articles

Background: Named entity recognition (NER) systems are commonly built using supervised methods that use machine learning to learn from corpora manually annotated with named entities. However, manually annotating corpora is very expensive and laborious.

Materials and methods: In this paper, a novel method is presented for training clinical NER systems that does not require any manual annotations. It only requires a raw text corpus and a resource like UMLS that can give a list of named entities along with their semantic types. Using these two resources, annotations are automatically obtained to train machine learning methods. The method was evaluated on ...

Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research

Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease and goes largely undiagnosed throughout the world, due to the inaccessibility of DXA machines. Multivariate analyses of serum bone turnover markers were evaluated in 226 Orange County, California, residents with the intent to determine if serum osteocalcin and serum pyridinoline cross-links could be used to detect the onset of osteoporosis as effectively as a DXA scan. Descriptive analyses of the demographic and lab characteristics of the participants were performed through frequency, means and standard deviation estimations. We implemented logistic regression modeling to find the best classification algorithm for osteoporosis. All calculations and ...
