Hi Pan,
Thanks for the useful feedback.  Coming from a new user perspective, how do you think we could
improve the user experience?

-          Add a blub about the pipeline in the documentation [1]

-          Update the default pipeline to contain the DrugNER (smoking status, relation extractor,
coreference, others)?- Drug signatures is probably a pretty common use case...

Hi Pei,

Just wondering, if I didn't see this in one of your slides of presentation, I wouldn't know
that this drug mention annotator is not included in the AggregateUMLSPlaintextprocessor.xml.
How can I know that which part of cTAKES is working, what else is not included here in AggregateUMLSPlaintextprocessor.xml
but should be working?

It's working. Thanks Pei.

If you have DictionaryLookupAnnotatorDB defined earlier, try the DictionaryLookupAnnotatorDB.
        <node> DictionaryLookupAnnotatorDB</node>

Hi Pei,

I was using the default AggregateUMLSPlaintextprocessor.xml.

I have <node>DictionaryLookupAnnotatorDB</node> instead of

       <node>DrugMentionAnnotator</node> you mentioned.

I edited the AggregateUMLSPlaintextprocessor.xml as you said, then I got the error like:

[Inline image 1]

The attached is the xml file after I added the DrugNER just now.

Many thanks for your quick reply.

Hi Pan,
Could you attach the pipeline configuration (is it DefaultAggregateUMLSPlaintextprocessor.xml)?
In particular,
Do you have the DrugNER (for the drug signatures) in your pipeline?
    <delegateAnalysisEngine key="DrugMentionAnnotator">
      <import location="../../../ctakes-drug-ner/desc/analysis_engine/DrugMentionAnnotator.xml"/>

Subject: Medication Mention

Hi cTAKES community,

I saw in one of the slides from your presentation saying that, query like "The patient took
aspirin 325 mg for knee pain."  will have annotation like <edu.mayo.bmi.uima.core.type.refsem.MedicationStrength
    value number = "325" unit = "mg">
    value="noChange" />

But when I ran this, I only got

medicationStrength = <null>, medicationStatusChange = <null>

Is the annotation for medication working properly?
I'm not sure what's wrong here. Any clues?
