  • Patent number: 10133847
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices map data of an electronic medical record to standardized medical concepts. The standardized medical concepts are defined by medical industry standards organizations. The methods, systems, and devices identify medical problem concepts, from the standardized medical concepts, generate feature values of the medical problem concepts based on features within the mapped standardized medical concepts, and weight the medical problem concepts based on the feature values according to a weighting function. These methods, systems, and devices identify medical problems as ones of the medical problem concepts that have a weighted score above a threshold, according to the weighting, and output a list of the medical problems.

  • Publication number: 20180196921
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions which are executed by the at least one processor and configure the processor to implement a medical treatment recommendation system. The medical treatment recommendation system receives a first patient electronic medical record (EMR) corresponding to a first patient. The medical treatment recommendation system analyzes the first patient EMR to detect an abbreviation within a span of content in the EMR using a plurality of abbreviation detectors. The medical treatment recommendation system identifies an abbreviation expansion for the abbreviation based on a term frequency and context of the abbreviation expansion. The medical treatment recommendation system performs an operation of the medical treatment recommendation system with regard to the span of content based on the identified abbreviation expansion.

  • Publication number: 20180137433
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided to implement a self-training engine of a question and answer system. The self-training engine pairs an unanswered natural language question with portions of an electronic document to generate an unlabeled data set. The self-training engine trains a model based on a labeled data set comprising a finite number of question and answer pair data structures and applies the model to the unlabeled data set to identify an answer from the portions of the electronic document to the unanswered natural language question. The self-training engine modifies the labeled data set to include the identified answer and corresponding unanswered natural language question as an additional question and answer pair data structure. The self-training engine then trains the model based on the modified labeled data set.

  • Publication number: 20180032678
    Abstract: Technical solutions are described for determining a relationship between pairs of entities. An example computer-implemented method includes generating, by a processor, an association score matrix for a pair of entities, the pair including a first entity and a second entity. The computer-implemented method also includes aggregating, by the processor, the association score matrix for the pair of entities into a single vector of association scores for the pair of entities. The computer-implemented method also includes computing, by the processor, a relationship score for the pair of entities based on the single vector of association scores. The computer-implemented method also includes, in response to the relationship score crossing a predetermined threshold, indicating that the first entity and the second entity are related to each other.

  • Publication number: 20170351754
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a computing device configured with instructions executing on a processor of the computing device to implement a timeline generation system, for automated timeline completion. The timeline generation system executing on the processor of the computing device identifies a plurality of events in documents in a corpus of information. The timeline generation system places the plurality of events in a partial timeline data structure. The timeline generation system selects an event progression from an event progression knowledge base. The timeline generation system aligns the selected event progression to the partial timeline data structure. The timeline generation system identifies a set of events missing from the partial timeline data structure. The timeline generation system maps the set of events missing from the partial timeline data structure to the partial timeline based on the selected event progression to form a completed timeline data structure.

  • Patent number: 9778953
    Abstract: A method and system for discovering dependencies, configurations and utilizations among IT resources are disclosed. A discovery team writes a prediscovery script without requesting credentials and sends it to a system administrator (SA) who already has necessary credentials to execute the prediscovery script. Then, the SA reviews the prediscovery script and executes the prediscovery script on a target server. While or after executing the prediscovery script, the target server generates a result of an execution of the prediscovery script and provides the result to an analysis system. The analysis system analyzes and parses the result and generates a user-friendly data (e.g., graph or spreadsheet) that represents the result. Then, the analysis system provides the user-friendly data to the discovery team. The analysis system does not require credentials and does not directly communicate with the target server except receiving the result of the executed prediscovery script from the target server.

  • Patent number: 9690861
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices provide semantically relevant information by analyzing an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) having structured data and unstructured data. In the analysis, a first set of medical concepts is identified from the unstructured data in the EMR, and a second set of medical concepts is identified from the structured data in the EMR.
