Abstract

The application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods and resources to clinical and biomedical text has received growing attention over the past years, but progress has been limited by difficulties to access shared tools and resources, partially caused by patient privacy and data confidentiality constraints. Efforts to increase sharing and interoperability of the few existing resources are needed to facilitate the progress observed in the general NLP domain. Leveraging our research in corpus analysis and de-identification research, we have created multiple synthetic data sets for a couple of NLP tasks based on real clinical sentences. We are organizing a challenge workshop to promote community efforts towards the advancement in clinical NLP. The challenge workshop will have two tasks: 1) Family History Information Extraction; and 2) Clinical Semantic Textual Similarity.
