We address the problem of recognition of medical entities in clinical records written in Italian. We report on experiments performed on medical data in English provided in the shared tasks at CLEF-ER 2013 and SemEval 2014. This allowed us to refine Named Entity recognition techniques to deal with the specifics of medical and clinical language in particular. We present two approaches for transferring the techniques to Italian. One solution relies on the creation of an Italian corpus of annotated clinical records and the other on adapting existing linguistic tools to the medical domain.

Abstract

We address the problem of recognition of medical entities in clinical records written in Italian. We report on experiments performed on medical data in English provided in the shared tasks at CLEF-ER 2013 and SemEval 2014. This allowed us to refine Named Entity recognition techniques to deal with the specifics of medical and clinical language in particular. We present two approaches for transferring the techniques to Italian. One solution relies on the creation of an Italian corpus of annotated clinical records and the other on adapting existing linguistic tools to the medical domain.
