Abstract

Discharge summaries serve a variety of aims, ranging from clinical care to legal purposes. They are also important tools in patient empowerment, but a patient's comprehension of the information is often suboptimal. Continuing in the tradition of focusing on automated approaches to increasing patient comprehension, The CLEFeHealth2014 lab tasked participants to visualize the information in discharge summaries while also providing connections to additional online information. Participants were provided with six cases containing a discharge summary, patient profile and information needs. Of fifty registrations, only the FLPolytech team completed all requirements related to the task. They augmented the discharge summary by linking to external resources, inserting structure related to timing of the information need (past, present future), enriching the content, i.e., with definitions, and providing meta-information, e.g., how to make future appointments. Four panellists evaluated the submission. Overall, they were positive about the enhancements, but all agreed that additional visualization could further improve the provided solution.
