The main objective of this thesis is to develop a system based on Text Mining capable of transforming the textual clinical information in Knowledge to support the health professional in making decisions that allow the early detection of a disease.
The partial objectives are the following:
- Design and develop a system that allows the extraction of named entities in the field of Medicine. The application will allow the detection of the following named medical entities: diagnosis, pharmacology, procedures, findings/symptoms and anatomical location.
- Develop a system capable of identifying risk factors or clinical alerts based on the named medical entities detected in the clinical reports.
- Develop a system that allows the automatic detection of negations in clinical reports.
- Design and implement a system that allows automatically inferring and categorizing clinical reports generating standardized diagnostic codes based on the paradigm of multi-label classification.
