Addressing Risk Assessment for Patient Safety in Hospitals through Information Extraction in Medical Reports
: Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) is a real burden for doctors and risk surveillance experts. The impact on patients' health and related healthcare cost is very significant and a major concern even for rich countries. Furthermore required data to evaluate the threat is generally not available to experts and that prevents from fast reaction. However, recent advances in Computational Intelligence Techniques such as Information Extraction, Risk Patterns Detection in documents and Decision Support Systems allow now to address this problem. Key words: Hospital Acquired Infections, Natural language Processing, Information Extraction, Risk Pattern.
