A Medical Information Extraction Workbench to Process German Clinical Text [article]

Roland Roller, Laura Seiffe, Ammer Ayach, Sebastian Möller, Oliver Marten, Michael Mikhailov, Christoph Alt, Danilo Schmidt, Fabian Halleck, Marcel Naik, Wiebke Duettmann, Klemens Budde
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This problem is even more evident for non-English languages. Approach: In order to address this situation, we introduce a workbench: a collection of German clinical text processing models.  ...  However, in the context of clinical text processing the number of accessible datasets is scarce -- and so is the number of existing tools. One of the main reasons is the sensitivity of the data.  ...  Concerning existing tools and pre-trained methods to process German clinical text, the situation is similar to the availability of text data.  ...
