BioNLP Workshop 2023: Problem List Summarization
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.
