Development of an oncology subset of SNOMED CT based on patient notes.
MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDA) is one of the world's largest institutions involved exclusively in cancer care, research, and prevention. More than 120,000 clinical transcribed documents are added to the MDA EMR system on a monthly basis. We used natural language processing methods to generate a subset of SNOMED CT concepts that are frequently documented as cancer diagnoses in patient notes.
