The retrospective analysis of health pathways gives a synthetic vision of the management of a pathology. It makes it possible to compare actual management with recommendations for good practice in order to evaluate the quality of care pathways, identify elements of the pathway requiring specific management and improve the diagnostic or therapeutic approach.
The TOC project proposes to use automatic language processing methods to facilitate this analysis. Julien Tourille will work on the textual content of patient files to develop tools adapted to the biomedical language that will make it possible to identify the salient events in the patient's medical history and the associated time markers in order to aggregate them into a synthetic chronology.
The first part of the work will consist in correctly detecting the temporal expressions used in the corpus. These temporal expressions can be absolute dates (e.g. January 14, 2008) but also relative dates that will require a resolution or normalization phase (e.g. January 14, 2008). This study will then make it possible to adapt existing time analysis tools, built mainly for the journalistic field. The team can build on similar studies conducted for the English language (Leaman et al. 2013, Fan & Friedman 2011, Zhu et al. 2013, Mork et al. 2013).
The next step will be cross-document co-reference. All the information contained in the documents will be filtered in order to establish a summary chronology of the most important events.
The chronologies obtained will be compared with the reference courses (developed with the help of doctors) and with standard management protocols.
The project presents many interests from the point of view of e-Health issues. Three main objectives have been established:
obtaining a synthetic and visual document of the patient's evolution;
the comparison of monitoring protocols in force and actual management
Analysis of the differences in treatment between similar cases and the discovery of new links between phenotypes and treatments.
