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.
