In this paper we provide an overview of the fourth edition of the CLEF eHealth evaluation lab. CLEF eHealth 2016 continues our evaluation resource building efforts around the easing and support of patients, their next-of-kins and clinical staff in understanding, accessing and authoring eHealth information in a multilingual setting. This year’s lab offered three tasks: Task 1 on handover information extraction related to Australian nursing shift changes, Task 2 on information extraction in French corpora, and Task 3 on multilingual patient-centred information retrieval considering query variations. In total 20 teams took part in these tasks (3 in Task 1, 7 in Task 2 and 10 in Task 3). Herein, we describe the resources created for these tasks, evaluation methodology adopted and provide a brief summary of participants to this year’s challenges and some results obtained. As in previous years, the organizers have made data and tools associated with the lab tasks available for future research and development.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
