Evaluating medical information retrieval
Koopman, Bevan, Bruza, Peter D., Sitbon, Laurianne, & Lawley, Michael J. (2011) Evaluating medical information retrieval. In 34th Annual ACM SIGIR conference on research and development in information retrieval, 24-28 July 2011, Beijing.
This paper presents a framework for evaluating information retrieval of medical records. We use the BLULab corpus, a large collection of real-world de-identified medical records. The collection has been hand coded by clinical terminol- ogists using the ICD-9 medical classification system. The ICD codes are used to devise queries and relevance judge- ments for this collection. Results of initial test runs using a baseline IR system are provided. Queries and relevance judgements are online to aid further research in medical IR. Please visit: http://koopman.id.au/med_eval.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
