Description

Mt. Sinai Health System explains how the provider uses machine learning and a natural language processing (NLP) algorithm to uncover social determinants of health (SDoH) in unstructured data contained in EMRs. The session speakers describe key factors for success in creating NLP ontologies, illustrate lessons learned and outline effective approaches to deploying NLP-based solutions for mining social determinants and other key data captured in progress, admission, procedure and consultation notes and discharge summaries. Attendees will be able to take away best practices for applying NLP solutions to their specific settings and care objectives for effectively identifying SDoH factors and other important clinical data residing in clinical notes.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss how social determinants of health help providers improve clinical models, understand disease progression and identify phenotypes
  • Apply methods for effectively and accurately extracting SDoH data for rich content in unstructured clinical notes
  • Describe best practices for defining and creating an initial ontology set
  • Explain process of training NLP algorithms to accurately identify SDoH in patient record notes
