Supporting Emergency Room Decision Making with Relevant Scientific Literature

Supervised by: Yassine Benajiba

Group Members: Liam Spurr,Rohan Shetty , Didugu Sutej, and Mrigank Tiwari

Course: Introduction to Statistical NLP

School: The George Washington University

Motivation and Problem Statement Our goal in this assignment was to provide healthcare providers (HCPs) with automated access to articles that can support clinical decision-making and diagnosis. Each patient that enters the ER represents a new combination of history (including environmental factors and health history), presenting symptoms, and potential diagnoses. HCPs are already overloaded and often do not have sufficient time to keep up with the current literature regarding treatments, diseases, and the interactions between them. Our plan is to create a tool which can be used to provide these HCPs with real-time, accurate reports of research relevant to each patient who enters the hospital. By linking the intake records of ER patients to relevant PubMed articles that can provide HCPs with clinical decision support, this project aims to increase the quality of care that patients receive, while making physicians and other healthcare providers feel supported in the challenging processes of diagnosis and treatment. There is currently no readily-available software that will link Electronic Health Records to relevant scientific articles. While there are existing tools which summarize articles and extract keywords, they do not have the capability to combine these with medical terminology to identify clinically relevant information. Our approach will identify actionable keywords in emergency room intake summaries and use these tokens to provide support in clinical decision making by delivering articles that provide information relevant to a patient’s condition.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
