Effects of Language and Terminology on the Usage of Health Query Suggestions [chapter]

Carla Teixeira Lopes, Cristina Ribeiro
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To assess how the language and terminology impact the use of suggestions, we conducted a user study with 40 subjects considering their English proficiency, health literacy and topic familiarity.  ...  Searching for health information is one of the most popular activities on the Web.  ...  This work was partially funded by project "NanoSTIMA: Macro-to-Nano Human Sensing: Towards Integrated Multimodal Health Monitoring and Analytics/NORTE-01-0145-FEDER-000016", financed by the North Portugal  ...

eHealth Interoperability with Web-based Medical Terminology Services - A Study of Service Requirements and Maturity

Neil Barrett, Jens H. Weber-Jahnke
2009 Journal of Emerging Technologies in Web Intelligence  
Interoperability of health information systems requires common clinical terminologies and services that make those terminologies available on a shared infrastructure, i.e.  ...  This paper identifies a list of service requirements based on a systematic literature review and uses these requirements to perform an assessment of current maturity of terminology servers.  ...  Both the TIG and terminology server implementations focused on access rather than management. The most developed services are querying and natural language bridging.  ...

Effects of language and terminology of query suggestions on medical accuracy considering different user characteristics

Carla Teixeira Lopes, Dagmara Paiva, Cristina Ribeiro
2017 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
This suggests a personalization of this suggestion system toward these characteristics. Overall, the effect of language is more preponderant than the effect of terminology.  ...  An analysis by type of suggestion and user characteristics showed that the benefits of certain languages and terminologies are more perceptible in users with certain levels of English proficiency and health  ...  In this work, we evaluate the effect of the suggested queries on the medical accuracy of the obtained knowledge, in general and by query language and terminology.  ...

Overcoming the linguistic divide: a barrier to consumer health information

Catherine Boden
2014 Journal of the Canadian Health Libraries Association  
This paper reviews the literature on the linguistic divide between health consumers and consumer health information.  ...  Consumer health vocabularies (CHV) and natural language processing (NLP) show potential for bridging the divide, thereby improving recall and precision from information retrieval systems.  ...  Of these barriers, one of the more tractable issues is the rift between health consumers' language and medical vocabulary.  ...

Analysis of biomedical and health queries: Lessons learned from TREC and CLEF evaluation benchmarks

Lynda Tamine, Cécile Chouquet, Thomas Palmer
2015 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
A large body of research work examined, from both the query side and the user behaviour side, the characteristics of medical and health-related searches.  ...  Based on the outcome of our study, we show that, even for expert oriented queries, language specificity level varies significantly across tasks as well as search difficulty and that the most related predictive  ...  Our findings suggest that, overall, the nature of the search task has a significant effect on the query characteristics.  ...

Taxonomy of Usage Issues for Consumer-centric Online Health Information Provision

Bang Viet Nguyen, Frada Burstein, Julie Fisher, Campbell Wilson
2015 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
We describe a taxonomy of usage issues derived from a literature analysis. We describe how we validated and refined the taxonomy based on analyzing the usage data from an operational health portal.  ...  Despite the broad range of health information portals (HIPs) available, usage problems with such portals are still widely recognized and reported.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported in part by a grant from the Telematics Trust Project: Breast Cancer Knowledge Online (BCKOnline) Portal.  ...

Consumer Health Concepts That Do Not Map to the UMLS: Where Do They Fit?

A. Keselman, C. A. Smith, G. Divita, H. Kim, A. C. Browne, G. Leroy, Q. Zeng-Treitler
2008 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
The relationship between new and existing concepts differed depending on the corpora from which they were extracted.  ...  Results: This approach identified 64 unmapped concepts, 17 of which were labeled as uniquely "lay" and not feasible for inclusion in professional health terminologies.  ...  The findings of this study suggest that the overlap between the conceptual universes underlying lay health language and professional terminologies is large.  ...

Lauren L. Wind, Jonathan S. Briganti, Anne M. Brown, Timothy P. Neher, Meghan F. Davis, Lisa M. Durso, Tanner Spicer, Stephanie Lansing
2021 Antibiotics  
The success of a One Health approach to combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR) requires effective data sharing across the three One Health domains (human, animal, and environment).  ...  The discord of language use across One Health potentially weakens the effectiveness of interdisciplinary research by creating accessibility issues for researchers using search engines.  ...  of understanding potential associated historical events that may have substantial effects on language usage in the One Health arena.  ...

Estimating Consumer Familiarity with Health Terminology: A Context-based Approach

Q. Zeng-Treitler, S. Goryachev, T. Tse, A. Keselman, A. Boxwala
2008 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
A b s t r a c t Objectives: Effective health communication is often hindered by a "vocabulary gap" between language familiar to consumers and jargon used in medical practice and research.  ...  The method was applied to a large query log data set and validated using results from two previously conducted consumer surveys.  ...  The queries do reflect actual consumer usage and the data set is large, although the consumers who searched for health information online are likely to be more educated and well-versed in health terminology  ...
