News from: BioNLP Workshop 2023 Shared Task 1A: Problem List Summarization v1.0.0.
Jan. 19, 2023
We are excited to announce the launch of a shared task on problem list summarization at the BioNLP Workshop 2023. The goal for participants is to generate a list of diagnoses and problems in a patient’s daily care plan using input from the provider’s progress notes during hospitalization. The task contains 768 progress notes for training, and 300 progress notes for evaluation. The goal of this shared task is to attract future research efforts in building NLP models for real-world decision support applications, where a system generating relevant and accurate diagnoses will assist the healthcare providers’ decision-making process and improve the quality of care for patients.
Participants will be tasked with developing NLP systems for EHR summarization. Participants who design novel systems and achieve competitive performance in the shared task, running from January to April 2023, will be invited to present their results at the BioNLP Workshop, which will be held in Toronto, Canada and co-located with ACL 2023. The challenge is open to anyone interested in clinical NLP and medical AI. We encourage individuals, teams, and organizations to participate.
To register for the challenge, please visit: https://forms.gle/geTXN6Z1pyfC55Fn8. More information about the challenge, including the official rules and guidelines, can be found at: https://physionet.org/content/bionlp-workshop-2023-task-1a/.

News from: Tasks 1 and 3 from Progress Note Understanding Suite of Tasks: SOAP Note Tagging and Problem List Summarization v1.0.0.
Jan. 19, 2023
The SOAP Note Tagging and Problem List Summarization dataset dataset is temporarily unavailable as it is part of an ongoing shared task of BioNLP Workshop 2023: 1A (Problem List Summarization). The dataset will be made available on July 13th, 2023. More details about the workshop and shared task can be found at: https://doi.org/10.13026/s8wk-ja78
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. We will provide updates as soon as more information becomes available. A new test set with 300 progress notes will be released along with the original set of 768 notes when the embargo is lifted.

News from: MIMIC-IV-ECG - Diagnostic Electrocardiogram Matched Subset v0.1.
Dec. 23, 2022
A beta release of the MIMIC-IV-ECG module is now available to MIT Critical Data Consortium members. The MIMIC-IV-ECG module contains approximately 800,000 diagnostic electrocardiograms across nearly 160,000 unique patients. All of the ECGs for patients who appear in the MIMIC-IV Clinical Database are included. When a cardiologist report is available for a given ECG, it is also provided. The patients in MIMIC-IV-ECG have been matched against the MIMIC-IV Clinical Database, making it possible to link to information across the MIMIC-IV modules.
A public version of this dataset will be released in approximately six months. During the embargo period we will be carrying out additional tests and data quality checks.

Congratulations to our colleagues who have been selected as finalists for the National Institutes of Health DataWorks Challenge!
Please support one of these teams working to share and reuse data in research and scientific discovery (The link will take you directly to the page to submit a vote). Voting is open until December 21, 2022. Unfortunately, you may only vote for one team, but they can both be awarded prizes. Please share and promote awareness to increase our colleagues’ chances!
MIT Critical Data
MIT Critical Data builds communities across disciplines to derive knowledge from health records to understand health and disease better. Help them continue to build valuable research resources such as MIMIC and freely accessible educational resources.
The PhysioNet Challenges are annual data science competitions that ask what we can learn from data to improve health and healthcare. Help the team draw out unrealized value from data and advance data reuse and algorithm development.
The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are championing a bold vision of data sharing and reuse. The DataWorks! Prize fuels this vision with an annual challenge that showcases the benefits of research data management while recognizing and rewarding teams whose research demonstrates the power of data sharing or reuse practices to advance scientific discovery and human health. The future of biological and biomedical research hinges on researchers’ ability to share and reuse data. Sharing and reuse had a sizable, catalytic impact on the development of COVID-19 vaccines and treatment protocols. The DataWorks! Prize is an opportunity for the research community to share their stories about the practices, big and small, that lead to scientific discovery.

The PhysioNet team were recipients of the inaugural MIT Prize for Open Data in recognition of their work to support health research and education. The award - established to highlight the value of open data at MIT - was presented by School of Science Dean Nergis Mavalvala and MIT Libraries Director Chris Bourg on October 28 in the MIT Hayden Library.
