Subject RE: [DRAFT] [REPORT] Apache cTAKES Jun 2015
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2015 06:43:50 GMT
Hi Folks,

I am working with Ctakes Wherein I am looking to search reason for discontinuation from the
clinical notes. Does Ctakes offer any API or concept with which we can find the same.
Example-> Mr. xxx have been recommended not to take Dilantin due to its side effects.
In this case we need to train machine so that it tells us that the medicine was discontinued
and the reason was its side effects.
I appreciate if I can get small help also.

Thanks & Regards,
Soumya Shree
