An up-to-date problem list is useful for assessing a patient?s current clinical sta- tus. Natural language processing can help maintain an accurate problem list. For in- stance, a patient problem list from a clin- ical document can be derived from indi- vidual problem mentions within the clin- ical document once these mentions are mapped to a standard vocabulary. In order to develop and evaluate accurate document-level inference engines for this task, a patient problem list could be gen- erated using a standard vocabulary. Ad- equate coverage by standard vocabularies is important for supporting a clear rep- resentation of the patient problem con- cepts described in the texts and for interop- erability between clinical systems within and outside the care facilities. In this pilot study, we ...
