Healthcare Natural Language Processing

Our study examined three public cloud service offerings that use natural language processing to meet the challenge—Google Cloud Healthcare API, Amazon Comprehend Medical, and Microsoft Azure Text Analytics for Health. We manually annotated medical notes to identify terms within the documents from a common set of entities and relationships. Next, we built an annotation taxonomy by comparing the taxonomies of the three NLP solutions and created a standard mapping of the entities and relationships shared by all three platforms. We then compared our annotations to the annotations of each solution, using the annotation taxonomy, and noted false negatives (not desired), true positives (desired), and false positives (not desired).
