The Clinical Narrative
This chapter discusses text processing of the clinical narrative portion of the electronic medical record. This is somewhat different from the general information retrieval (IR) problem, as the goal of processing the clinical narrative is usually the extraction of data for use in patient care, research, or quality assurance. However, there is increasing interest in this area, and it shares many techniques with IR and natural language processing (NLP) in particular.
