Dietary supplements (DSs) have been widely used in the U.S. and evaluated in clinical trials as potential interventions for various diseases. However, many clinical trials face challenges in recruiting enough eligible patients in a timely fashion, causing delays or even early termination. Using electronic health records to find eligible patients who meet clinical trial eligibility criteria has been shown as a promising way to assess recruitment feasibility and accelerate the recruitment

We mapped annotated entities to OMOP Common Data Model (CDM) with novel entities (e.g., DS). We also evaluated a deep learning model (Bi-LSTM-CRF) for extracting these entities on CLAMP platform, with an average F1 measure of 0.601. This study shows the feasibility of automatic parsing of the eligibility criteria following OMOP CDM for future cohort identification.
