Synthetic data for annotation and extraction of family history information from clinical text (open access)

Synthetic data for annotation and extraction of family history information from clinical text

This article investigates the use of synthetic data for the annotation and automated extraction of family history information relating to cases of cardiac disease from Norwegian clinical text. This work assesses the validity and applicability of the annotated synthetic corpus using machine learning techniques. The methodology outlined in this article may be useful in other situations where limited availability of clinical text hinders NLP tasks.
