Clinical Text Generation through Leveraging Medical Concept and Relations

10/02/2019 ∙ by Wangjin Lee, et al. ∙ 0

With a neural sequence generation model, this study aims to develop a method of writing the patient clinical texts given a brief medical history. As a proof-of-a-concept, we have demonstrated that it can be workable to use medical concept embedding in clinical text generation. Our model was based on the Sequence-to-Sequence architecture and trained with a large set of de-identified clinical text data. The quantitative result shows that our concept embedding method decreased the perplexity of the baseline architecture. Also, we discuss the analyzed results from a human evaluation performed by medical doctors.
